The Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, Amina Mohammed, has banned a United States' medium, Inner City Press, from covering UN briefings after it asked questions about President Muhammadu Buhari government's arrest and trial of Yoruba Nation Activist, Sunday Adeyemo (Igboho).
Inner City Press in a tweet on Tuesday disclosed that it was served a three weeks’ ban after its reporter inquired into the human rights violation of Sunday Igboho among other developing rights issues.
“Inner City Press has asked: what are the comments and actions if any of SG Guterres and DSG @AminaJMohammed on that a court in #Benin has ordered that a #Nigeria leader being held in the country be moved to prison: Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho,” it added.
SaharaReporters had reported that Igboho was awaiting his fate at the Cour De’appel De Cotonou, Benin Republic, following his arraignment by the authorities of the country for immigration-related offences.
