Abia State Online Media Practitioners(ASOMP) have condemned the arrest and detention of Emeh James Anyalakwe, the editor in Chief of Igbere TV an online media platform by the men of the State Security Service (SSS).
In strong worded press release, the union demanded for the immediate release of Emeh James Anyalakwe and also called on well-meaning Nigerians to intercede and help facilitate his release.


You can read the full press release below:

"The arrest of Emeh James Anyalakwe, the editor in Chief of Igbere TV an online media platform by the men of the State Security Service has come to us as a shock, Emeh James Anyalakwe happens to be the President of Abia Online Media Practitioners and as a Union we are not happy about his arrest and detention.
Freedom of the Press is one very key factor in any democracy and whenever the media is silenced then what is in practice is not democracy. We call upon the National Director of State Security Service to release Emeh James Anyalakwe immediately and follow appropriate process to seek remedy on any issue they find offensive with the publications of Igbere TV.
Gone are the days when Security operatives are used to intimidate, clampdown and close down news platforms, in today’s world the court is the proper place to seek redress on any issue.
Abia Online Media Practitioners is using this opportunity to call on fellow professionals and men of good will to please step in and help facilitate the immediate release of Emeh James Anyalakwe.
Emeh James Anyalakwe was arrested in his house in Uyo before his family today.
Injury to one is an injury to all".
