Saharareporters just learnt minutes ago that the SSS at MMIA in Lagos arrested Okey Ndibe and detained, a   columnist and US professor.

Mr. Ndibe arrived on Turkish airlines at 9:31 PM (Nigerian Time).

One SSS officer named “Mr. George” told Mr. Ndibe his supervisor needed to see him on the first floor at room 1062.

After being held for several hours he was released after he was made to give his Nigerian address, but just before he was released, his Nigerian passport was seized by the agency. They requested that he appears before the Kingsway Road office of the agency on Monday to interview with their director for further action.

Okey Ndibe is a US professor and a columnist for the SUN newspaper as well as several websites including SaharaReporters.com. He is also a professor of English Literature at Trinity College in Connecticut and Brown University in Rhode Island.
