Jones Abiri: How Buhari Led FG, Charges Activist And Journalist On Terrorism

The Federal Government of Nigeria under the command of President Mohammadu Buhari apprehend Jones Abiri, who happened to be a Journalist, and he is charged with three offences, namely, terrorism, fraud and economic sabotage. The Journalist was charged on the three counts on Wednesday as reported by his legal advisor, Samuel Ogala, NIGERIA NEWS reports.

NIGERIA NEWS gathered the fact why Mr. Jones was charged with terrorism and it is as a result of the court reports that states that he blackmailed the officials at Agip and Shell through text message to meet his requests, otherwise he would be left with no choice to blow off their oil installations

He was also charged for ordering sets of crooks who called themselves activists to vandalize the Bayelsa state oil pipelines. The period reported for committing the offences is as of date back between the month of June to July of 2016.

Mr Jones Abiri was arrested by the Bayelsa state security service and he spent two years in their custody without charging him to the court of law. Immediately he was released, the charges were then brought against him some months later.

Mr Jones pleaded not guilty of the offences and said that he was only haunted for his journalism work that brings to the limelight the corrupt conducts of oil companies and the intervention of the Federal Government in the Niger Delta region. The media rights advocates have taken his matter up and have requested that all sort of court charges be nullified.
