Popular lawyer and human rights activist Inibehe Effiong, has shared his experience and also registered his disappointment after visiting the State Security Service, demanding to see the 5 church members who took their protest to the Dunamis Church.
"I just left the Headquarters of the State Security Service (SSS) in Abuja, i requested access to the five activists arrested on Sunday at Dunamis Gospel church for wearing anti- T-shirts to the Church but i was not given access to them, we have a long way to go as a country.
Since the arrest and detention took place, the whereabouts of the 5 activists that were arrested have been unknown. The arrest has generated a whole lot of controversies both on and of social media, many are arguing that the church is not the right place to take such agitation to, some also believe that the church should have protected them, while another set of people believe that the church could have simply walked them out and not get them arrested.
Both Dunamis International Gospel Church and the DSS have denied having any hand in the arrest, the whereabout of the protesters is still unknown, as all efforts that has been put in to secure their arrest have remained futile.
