#June12 Protest: Police Arrest Agba Jalingo

47

An activist and newspaper publisher, Agba Jalingo, has been arrested by the police in Calabar, Cross River State, Nigeria’s South-south. The newspaper said Mr Sikiru invited Mr Jalingo to the police headquarters to discuss the planned nationwide June 12 protest which the latter is said to be coordinating in the state. After discussions, Mr Jalingo was reportedly referred to another officer who informed him that the police had received a petition which accused him of being an arms dealer, the newspaper said. “There was a petition against him that he is a member of drug dealers, so we called him to question him,” the police spokesperson in Cross River State, Irene Ugbo told PREMIUM TIMES on Friday, at about 3:44 p.m. “He is still writing his stuff (response to the petition). When he finishes we’ll let him go if we find him not wanting,” she added. It is unclear, for now, if Mr Ugbal is also being questioned by the police. His phone line was switched off when PREMIUM TIMES tried to contact him by 4:16 p.m.
