A coalition of civil society groups, #OurMumuDondo, has stormed the Force Headquarters, Abuja, to demand the release of detained Premiums Times reporter, Samuel Ogundipe.

The protest which was led by popular musician, Charlie Boy, the protesters insisted on the release of the reporter, stating that asking a journalist to reveal his source is against the act of journalism while noting that they would not leave until he is freed

The activists briefly barricaded the Shehu Shagari Way, forcing motorists to ply alternative routes.

Presidential aspirant, Omoyele Sowore, berated the Inspector-General of Police Ibrahim Idris, for pressurising Ogundipe to disclose his source.

Another activist, Ralph Adebayo, described the IG as “ignorant,” stating that “he has been transmitting confusion since he became the Police boss, stumbling from one controversy to another.”
