The Nigeria Police Force has detained the Publisher of Taraba Truth and Facts Newspaper and CEO of Rock FM Jalingo, Mr. Ayodele Samuel Oloye, at the Force Criminal Investigation Department, FCID Abuja.

The development followed a petition by the lawmaker representing the Taraba South Senatorial District, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha.

Mr. Bwacha had petitioned the FCID to investigate the young media entrepreneur in Taraba State, over alleged cyber-stalling, defamation of character, and frustration of ambition among others.

Ayodele had, prior to his detention, raised an alert in a text message forwarded to media colleagues on Monday morning.

He said, “I’m Ayodele Samuel Publisher of Taraba Truth and Facts Newspaper and CEO of Rock FM Jalingo, the first private FM radio station in Taraba State.

“I’m honouring a police invitation at the FCID, Abuja over a petition (I don’t know who the petitioners are or the content of the petition) but as a law-abiding citizen, I have honoured the invitation with a lawyer provided by the Media Rights Agenda MRA.

“I feel it’s necessary to inform you and seek for your support incase things go south”.
