The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has invited popular Investigative Journalist, Fisayo Soyombo, over an ongoing investigation.
In a post via his verified Facebook page on Monday, Soyombo said the Monitoring Unit of the Inspector General of Police invited him over to the Force Headquarters, Abuja.
The FIJ publisher stated that he is a law-abiding citizen who has committed no crime, adding that he will be surrendering his devices to the investigators for a probe.
He wrote: “I have just arrived at the Force Headquarters, Abuja, to honour an invitation from the Monitoring Unit of the Inspector General of Police. They say my “name and phone number featured in an investigation” they are conducting.
“The decision to come was straightforward: I am a law-abiding citizen who has committed no crime unless journalism is one. If there is no update on this handle by dusk, it means I have been unjustly detained. I will be surrendering my devices now. Any other update until my release will be provided by FIJ Nigeria.”
