The National Association of Online Security Reporters (NAOSRE) has warned security agencies not to harass or abduct Idumonza Isidahomhen, the Editor-in-Chief of OpenLife, a pan African news magazine, over a report published by his platform.
Lovetvnews Nigeria reports that the association raised the alarm over the alleged plot to arrest the publisher after he ran a story on alleged fraudulent and exploitative activities carried out at the Afe Babalola University of Ado-Ekiti (ABUAD) in the admission of students and administration of the institution.
In the statement by its National President, Femi Oyewale, NAOSRE urged security agencies to respect journalists as essential service providers and a major partner in the efforts to close the gap between security agencies and the general public.
The association called on the Inspector-General of Police Usman Alkali Baba to caution his officers against abducting Isidahomhen.
NAOSRE said officers of the Ekiti State Command of the Nigeria Police arrived in Lagos on Friday afternoon with the intention of picking up Isidahomhen in what they addressed as an ‘order from above.’
The officers were at the Lagos command to register their presence in the state.
According to the story on the OpenLife website, parents of students of ABUAD described the institution as fraudulent and exploitative for admitting about 400 students and making them pay so much higher than other institutions only to graduate 100 students at the end of six years.
