Fisayo Soyombo, the investigative journalist who exposed the rot in the police force and Nigerian prison system, has gone into hiding.
Fisayo who spoke to Sahara Reporters reportedly said he’s wanted by the Buhari-led administration.
“It’s true. I’m in hiding” he said.
During the course of his investigation, Fisayo Soyombo spent days in a police cell and also in Ikoyi prison where he gathered his information.
He was scheduled to attend a Fake News workshop organized by Goethe Institute but pulled out following threats against him.
A source said: “Prisons authorities are very angry and have decided to get the journalist arrested”.
“He is to be charged to court and prosecuted under Section 29 of the Nigeria Correctional Service Act.
Subsection 1 (d) of the Act states that a person is deemed to have committed an offence if he “procures or facilitates the procurement of communication devices for an inmate or makes conversation or aids the making of conversation through a mobile phone or other devices to an inmate other than as provided in the Correctional Standing Orders and other related correctional policies” a source said.
