Preparations are in top gear for a massive protest in Uyo, capital of Akwa Ibom State, for the release of Odudu Ukpanah, who has been detained for the past seven months allegedly on the orders of Governor Godswill Akpabio.

“We shall send a clear message to the oppressor and his surrogates that the days of unchallenged impunities and dictatorship are over,” Inibehe Effiong, Coordinator of the ‪#‎ReleaseOduduUkpanah Campaign, said last night.

Effiong has in the past few days been mobilising other Akwa Ibom youths for the protest and has vowed to see the campaign to a logical conlusion.

The youth activist disclosed that he in the company of some members of the ‪#‎ReleaseOduduUkpanah Campaign were at the Ikot Ekpene Medium Prison yesterday to spend Christmas with Odudu Ukpanah.

Lamenting the travails of Odudu Ukpanah, who holds a Master’s degree from the Coventry University, United Kingdom, Effiong said: “His father, Late Engr. Albert Jimmy Ukpanah, an outspoken politician, was assassinated on March 12, 2014 in what the police investigation report described as politically motivated.

“Instead of going after the REAL KILLERS as recommended by the IPO in his report, the emperor ordered the arrest, detention and prosecution of the only son of the slain politician without any modicum of evidence linking the innocent Odudu with his father’s death.”
