Rights activist, Agba Jalingo, has raised alarm that policemen have surrounded his residence located in Lagos State.

In a series of posts on his Facebook account on Friday, the Cross-River born journalist said the policemen held his wife and daughter hostage on the floor of his residence.

“I don’t know who sent the police but they have held my wife and my daughter hostage downstairs. I don’t feel safe. Those are their faces”, he posted, sharing a picture of some men in mufti at the gate.

“Police men are still sorrounding my house in Lagos. I still don’t know what brought them here. My wife and daughter are held hostage.

According to Jalingo, the policemen were sent from Abuja by the Franko Ayade, the brother to the Cross River State Governor, Ben Ayade.

“I have information that the police were sent from Abuja and the command CP is aware. I don’t know what I have done again but I am afraid for my life.

“They are sent by Franko Ayade. They are trying to force their way in right now,” he wrote.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin had yet to comment on the matter as at the time of filing this report.
