Akwa Ibom Government Jails Journalist For Taking Pictures

A female journalist, Mary Ekere, has been locked in an Akwa Ibom prison for taking pictures of the state's task force raiding a city spot notorious for illegal street trading. 
Accoridng to Premium Times, the journalist has been in prison custody for two days despite efforts by the Nigeria Union of Journalists to get her released.Ekere covers the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly for The Post, a local newspaper in the state.She was walking past a popular recreational spot called Ibom Plaza, in Uyo, the state capital, when she saw officials of Akwa Ibom government task force raiding the spot.She decided to take some pictures of their operation, said Gideon Ekere, the editor-in-chief of The Post.“They were on illegal operation, obviously. So, they arrested her for taking the photos, pushed her into their vehicle, and then threw her into jail just like that,” Ekere said.The task force is under the state government’s Environmental and Waste Management Agency headed by Prince Ikim.The journalist was arrested on Monday around 12:30 pm and later remanded in the Uyo prisons custody the same day.Ekere, wearing prison uniform, was taken to a sanitation court on Tuesday morning.The newspaper quoted Amos Etuk, the chairman of NUJ in Akwa Ibom, as saying, “I went there (the court) in the morning, we were assured (by Prince Ikim) that bail conditions would be given to her and that she would be released.”Etuk said he also got assurance from the prosecutor the journalist was going to be released on bail on Tuesday.Ekere met her bail conditions but was taken back to the prison because the magistrate had left without signing the bail documents.“We don’t even know how they threw her into the prison in the first place,” Mr Etuk said. “They took her to a police station, from there to the court, the magistrate was not there, so they took her to the prisons.”Ekere’s parents, who spent all day in court, felt sad to see their daughter taken back to the prison.“I left the court and went back to the house to prepare food for her to eat, but I was surprised to see the father come back alone,” her mother said, sobbing.“That girl has not committed any offence.”The NUJ issued a statement on Tuesday night condemning the arrest and arraignment of the journalist.“The state council demands her unconditional release on or before noon on Wednesday,” the union said in the statement.Diamond Ifiok, the information officer at the agency, said some unruly boys engaged the officials of the task force in a fight.“Mary Ekere was within the area when this thing happened; she didn’t identify herself as a journalist. It was later at the court that she said she is a journalist,” Ifiok said.She said the chairman of the agency, Ikim, had been informed about the journalist’s arraignment and that he was surprised she had not been released.“You know when it gets to court, there is nothing you can actually do other than to follow the rules of the court to get yourself out,” she added.

PDP Senator Dumps Party, Joins APC

A member of the Sixth Senate, who represented Bayelsa East Senatorial district between 2007 and 2011 on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party, Sen. Nimi Barigha-Amange, on Wednesday gave notice of his intention to join the ruling All Progressives Congress.He stated this in a letter to the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, which was submitted to the Acting National Secretary, Victor Giadom, on Wednesday.Barigha-Amange, who said he had resigned his membership from his former party said he was moving with members of his political family, all members of Destiny Movement and SIG Elite Foundation of Nembe and Brass local government areas. He said his decision to defect to the APC was due to the authoritarian attitude of Governor Seriake Dickson.“When I was in PDP, we were enslaved by only one man who regarded himself as emperor. There were no political activities there even if you want to be a Councillor. The 105 councillors were nominated by him. The eight chairmen were nominated by him, so, I cannot be part.“I was one of the founding fathers of PDP in Bayelsa State. I did not join the PDP, I took part in the formation of PDP here in August 1998 and I have been there since. But I have never seen this kind of authoritarian rule. So, I have decided to pitch my tent with a party that can uproot this bottom from the ground, so that, Bayelsans will be freed, and I promise you, Bayelsans will be freed come November 16, 2019,” he said.When asked why he was so sure that the ruling party in the State (PDP) will win, the former lawmaker insisted that out of eight Local Government Areas, APC has taken 3 LGs while PDP is holding on to 2 LGs and the remaining 3 will be divided equally.He said, “Today, I can tell you that the candidate of APC, David Lyon, comes from Southern Ijaw LG. That is the Local government with the highest voting strength. Definitely, that Local government is for APC. I come from Nembe LG and by my joining APC, Nembe has fallen into the hands of APC.“Brass is where Timipre Sylva comes from and Brass normally is for APC. And I also assisted APC in winning my own Senatorial district in the last election. I also assisted APC in winning House of Representatives seat during February election. So, those three LGs are gone and we can give Kolokuma/Opokuma, the smallest LG to PDP because their candidate is from there.“Then, the Sagbama Local Government Area where the present governor comes from will be donated to the present governor because his running mate is from Sagbama LG.“Where the governor comes from, is where he picks running mate to PDP candidate. The question is, what will other LGs do? We can still donate that to him, so, we are taking three, they are taking two. The remaining LGs is 50/50.”While welcoming the defector, the acting National Secretary urged him to be focussed and join hands with the party to provide dividend of democracy to Bayelsa people.Source:https://punchng.com/pdp-senator-dumps-party-joins-apc/
