Mr. Daniel Elombah, the publisher of Elombah.com and United Kingdom based lawyer, has been arrested by officials of the Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS, of the Nigerian police.

Daniel, who is also the General Secretary of the Online Publishers Association, OPAN, was arrested alongside his brothers from their family house in Edoji-Uruagu Nnewi, Anambra State in the early hours of new year day.

The officers who stormed the compound in a commando-styled operation refused to give reasons why the journalist was being arrested as his wife, two kids and aged mother watched in horror. They just said they were acting based on “orders from above” as they shackled him and others in cuffs before taking them away in one of the vans they came in.
