IPI demands immediate release of Olatunji, First News editor

The International Press Institute (IPI) Nigeria has called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to prevail on the security agencies to rescue the Editor of FirstNews, Mr Segun Olatunji, who was allegedly abducted by the military last Friday. 

IPI Nigeria, in a statement signed by its President, Musikilu Mojeed and Legal Adviser, Tobi Soniyi said “The continued detention of Mr Olatunji under whatever guise is a gross violation of his fundamental human rights under the Nigerian Constitution. 

“He is entitled to his liberty. If, however, he has committed an offence, he should be charged to court as provided for by the Constitution”.

Recall that Olatunji, a former Kaduna State correspondent of The PUNCH, was on Friday picked up in his Lagos home in Iyana Odo, Abule Egba area of Lagos and was reportedly whisked away by 10 armed men.
