Deji Adeyanju Petitions US Govt., Requests Visa Ban On Cross Rivers’ State Governor
Deji Adeyanju, leader of civil society organization, Concerned Nigerians, has asked the United States Embassy in Nigeria to impose a visa ban on Cross River State governor, Ben Ayade, over the illegal arrest and detention of Nigerian journalists, Agba Jalingo and Joseph Odok.
In a letter addressed to the embassy and signed by Adeyanju, the group said it believes that the illegal arrest and detention of Jalingo and Odok shouldn’t happen in a democracy. Both journalists have been in detention for allegedly writing articles against the governor.
The group in another petition to the National Human Rights Commission urged the agency to commence an investigation into the growing clampdown on press freedom and freedom of expression in Cross River State.
Adeyanju, please leave the Governor of Cross River State alone. Do you think the Staff of the American Embassy in Nigeria wouldn’t recognize a democratic entity if they found one. Adeyanju, ask your family to give you your gorilla marks on your face before arrogating yourself to the point of insulting a person whose family embraced Western Civilization before your family started wearing clothes. Do you realize when the Portuguese Sailors visited Calabar for the first time? It was in the fifth Century. Therefore, don’t bother him again otherwise Ibos will descend on you.
