“They say my “name and phone number featured in an investigation” they are conducting.

“The decision to come was straightforward: I am a law-abiding citizen who has committed no crime unless journalism is one.

“If there is no update on this handle by dusk, it means I have been unjustly detained.

I will be surrendering my devices now. Any other update until my release will be provided by @fijnigeria,” Soyombo said.
