DSS Arrest Executive Director Of International Press Centre




Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS), have arrested Lanre Arogundade, the Executive Director of the International Press Centre (IPC).

Arogundade was detained on Thursday, February 10, by operatives of the DSS after arriving Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos.

In a Facebook post shared by Arogundade, he said he had just arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, from The Gambia, when he was detained by DSS operatives around 3:30pm.

He reportedly travelled to Banjul, The Gambia capital, to train journalists on conflict-sensitive reporting.

The IPC Director wrote;

“This is me at the DSS office at the International Airport Lagos where I’m being held or detained against my wish.

“I have just returned from Banjul where I went to train Gambian journalists on conflict sensitive journalism.

“Ever since the days of military rule, I get molested by DSS and Immigration at the airport. This nonsense has to stop!”
