SSS denies arresting Oby Ezekwesili

The Department of State Security has denied arresting a former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili.

Media reports had it that the leading member of the BringBackOurGirls campaign was arrested, quizzed and released.

But the Director-General of the DSS, Mr, Ita Ekpeyong, told State House correspondents on Monday that there was no truth in the report.

Ekpeyong said the former minister was currently in London and there was no way she could have been arrested.
“Did she tell you she was arrested? Did you see her? She is currently in London and that shows you that she was not arrested. We did not arrest her,” he declared.
Ezakwesili alleged that her travelling passport was seized but was later released for her to continue on her journey to the UK.
