While social media users have been calling for the unconditional release of the release of the Facebook user, it has been gathered that one Chief Chinedu Obidigwe, a former political adviser to governor Willie Obiano and the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) flag bearer for Anambra East and West Federal constituency – was allegedly behind the arrest of Eneh for always criticizing him and his political ambition ahead of the 2019 election.

Eneh was reportedly arrested in Enugu on Wednesday around 1 a.m by operatives of the State CID Awka, and driven to Aguleri in Anambra to Chinedu Obidigwe’s house in a Toyota Sienna and three hilux vans where he was handcuffed and humiliated as seen in photos below.

  12. Please where are the human right fighters, come and fight for Eneh Victor ,for the is freedom of expression

  13. How can such a person be allowed to assume a political position when oppression has become his ruling strategy. The young man now has sufficient evidence against the politician, he should press charges.

  14. What has happened to freedom of speech and expression? So, someone can not criticize Nigeria politicians again. May be I’m the one they will arrest next because I will never stop criticizing Nigeria politicians. They are corrupt and they are thieves.

  15. this is just the reason why I always mind my comments on political post… I know it will get to this extent

  16. The politician is a coward for resisting freedom of speech… I can’t vote for such a person so someone can’t air his own views again

  17. This is violating his right as a citizen of this country and its totally unacceptable. He has freedom of speech, so he should be freed.

  18. We should be careful of what we say on social media cause any thing u say about some one will be used against you

  24. This is abused of his fundamental human right,he has the right of freedom of expression, this what happen in a country where there is no justice system

  25. This is too much everyone has the right to talk . besides that this isn’t a military regime that no one dares to talk about any one in power

  26. It seems some people have forgotten fundamental human rights , the one which is “freedom of expression”

  27. So we should not talk again in this country, and some people can use their mouth talk nonsense as well, God be with you bro

  28. I dont think this is fair.. I mean everyone has freedom of speech and expression..some people use their power to intimidate others which is not right.. They should try and forgive him

  29. This is Nigeria, where the people don’t even know their rights, imagine this, is he the only one criticizing? And they want to win election abi? God is watching.
