The American Bar Association has revealed in a letter the organization’s intent to observe the case between Commissioner of Police and Tim and Daniel Elomah which is scheduled for 1st March, 2018 before the Abuja High Court.
Recall that operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Armed Robbery Squad, SARS stormed the house of the family compound of popular Lawyer and blogger Daniel Elomah on the 1st of January 2018 arresting Daniel and other male members of the family in Anambra. While giving his account online Daniel said;
Their team leader explained that the IGP personally ordered our arrest because my brother Tim Elombah, was accused of publishing an article on an online media, Elombah.com which article was allegedly aimed at blackmailing the IGP. We requested for details of the offending article but were told that we will be given the details in Abuja where we were headed shortly. The STS team leader thereafter released 3 of my brothers who were told to find their way back home to Nnewi, while the 3 of us namely: myself, Tim and Izuchukwu Elombah were herded in handcuffs into another Bus after we were briefly interrogated.
