    Police release Peoples Gazette editor 

    Published By:

    Police released staff members of Peoples Gazette John Adenekan, assistant managing editor, and Grace Oke, admin personnel, who were arrested by Officers of the Nigeria Police Force in Abuja on Friday,

    Wakadaily gathered that the staff members were arrested following an article which was published by the news medium linking a former Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Buratai (retd.), to some properties that were seized by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission in suspicion of money laundering.

    Their release was confirmed by one if the publisher of peoples Gazette, Samuel Ogundipe, he said “I can confirm that our reporters and other staff members that were arrested earlier by the police have been released unconditionally. However, the police had just informed us that they came for me as the Managing Editor, and a reporter Adefemola Akintade, who wrote a report on a former Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai (retd.).

    “Unfortunately, rather than going to court, Buratai decided to intimidate our reporters and staff members by sending policemen to our head office. Now they claimed that there’s a petition against the newspaper accusing it of defaming the character of Buratai. But the truth is that, if Buratai feels that his character was defamed, he should go to court rather than resort to the use of state forces to intimidate our journalists and staff members, he stated.

    Mr Ogundipe, however, said, “this might not be the end of Mr Buratai’s brutal antics”.
