NUJ condemns continued detention of Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah 





The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) has joined prominent Nigerians and groups to condemn the continued detention of the Chairman of Capital Oil and Gas Industries Limited, Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, by the Department of State Services (DSS).

The Union, therefore, called for his immediate release or prosecution by the secret police, if it had any case against him.

The latest call for his release comes from the Anambra State Council of the NUJ whose members urged the DSS to respect the rule of law and release the businessman as directed by a competent court.

NUJ in a press statement signed by its Chairman, Comrade Emmanuel Ifesinachi and

Secretary, Emma Udeagha, said that the continued detention of Ubah against the order of a competent court was no longer acceptable.

Also yesterday, some clerics led by a journalists-turned pastor, Theo Rays, offered special prayers for the immediate release of Ubah.

Ubah’s company has a commercial dispute with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), for which the DSS has detained over one month without trial.

Rays said he initiated the marathon prayers with other men of God to ask God to intervene in the case between the DSS and Ubah and facilitate its amicable resolution so that Ubah could go back to his businesses.
