US-based Nigerian professor and Political columnist, Okey Ndibe was allegedly detained by the DSS before being allowed to board his flight yesterday January 20.
Nigerian-born former Chief of Staff to the Board of Montgomery County Public Schools in Rockville, Maryland, (MCPS) USA, Ikhide Roland Ikheloa made the disclosure via a tweet he shared.
Ikhide first tweeted;
I understand that Professor Okey Ndibe has been prevented from boarding his flight to his family in the US, by Nigeria’s secret police. In a democracy. How is Okey even a threat to Nigeria’s security?
Serving an update on this, he wrote;
Update: “After detaining me for a bit, they handed back my passport and said, No vex(!). I’ve now boarded my flight. Thanks, Brother Ikhide.”
