BREAKING: Police Invade Abuja Residence Of Anti-Buhari Social Media Critic

The Nigeria Police on Friday have invaded the residence of a famous anti-Buhari social media commentator, Somtochukwu Onuchukwu and was whisked away.

It was gathered that he was arrested moments after invading his residence to traumatise his family.

Peoples Gazette reports that Somtochukwu Onuchukwu was at home in Abuja’s Kubwa neighbourhood when a team of police officers broke in on Friday morning.

He was then taken away by the officers at about 11:30 a.m. following an initial standoff of about 25 minutes.

He is now being held at the police area command in Kubwa, associates said.

His wife, Ada, confirmed the arrest to newsmen, saying the police claimed something her husband did was against the law but without elaborating.

Newsflash could not immediately confirm the reason for Mr. Onuchukwu’s arrest, an ICT consultant based in Abuja but it might not be unconnected with his strong anti-Buhari views on social media.

The commentator is also a known supporter of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, which has yet to issue a statement about the development.

Demands have intensified earnestly on social media for Mr. Onuchukwu’s arrest, which many see as yet another instance of a widening culture of impunity amongst security agencies under President Muhammadu Buhari, who has a history of clamping down on critical voices.

Police spokesman in Abuja is yet to comment on the reason Mr Onuchukwu was arrested at the time of filling this report.
