A radio worker in Imo State, South-east Nigeria, has remained in detention for two months now after he was arrested by the State Security Service (SSS) for playing a song considered “offensive” to the Governor of the state, Hope Uzodinma, via the station.


The detained worker, Casmir Uzomah, is a staff member of the Orient Radio-Television Station, which is managed by the Imo State Broadcasting Corporation (IBC), a media outfit owned by the Imo State Government.

He works in the technical department of the station. He was arrested on 4 August, according to a report by investigative journalists, within the state.

The wife, Onyinyechi, has appealed to the state government and the SSS to free her husband.

“They should please free my husband. I am not working, and my children need to go to school.”

“They said he played a song that was abusing the Hope Uzodinma. I have not seen him since then,” Mrs Onyinyechi, a mother of five, said, according to the ICIR report.

“My Sister-in-law called me on that day and told me that they have arrested my husband.

“She said I should take care of the children. (Calls to) his phone has not been going (through) since then,” she added.
