Detained media worker released

By Nsikan Ikpe

Detained media worker, Dr. Chido Onumah, who had been arrested upon his return from a European trip on Sunday, has presently been released.

Sources say Onumah had indeed been arrested on account of misunderstanding arising from a passenger’s complaint over the lettering on the promotional T-shirt for one of his books that he was wearing on the flight.

The caption, We are all Biafrans, synchronises with the title of his best-selling critical exposition on the Nigerian condition that is being sold all over the world.

Onumah, who had graduated from the University of Calabar, recently bagged a Ph.D in Communication.

A columnist for both Premium Times and Sahara Reporters, he equally runs the Abuja-based Africa Centre for Media and Information Literacy, AFRICMIL.

Responding to news of his release, one commentator remarked that it was indeed most inexplicable that such a trifle had to be elevated to the point where it had to be escalated to a State Security Services headquarters inquiry, wondering why the Airport Desk of the service could not have dispensed with the subject on the spot.
