Police’s plan to withdraw charges against George Uboh and rearrest him at court premises fails:

At George Uboh’s bail ruling today Tuesday, May 28, 2019, the police’s prosecutor sought withdrawal of the two defamation charges against Uboh. See attached. Because of the presence of armed men in two vans around the court premises, Uboh’ lawyer argued against the withdrawal of the charges unless the prosecutor guarantees the armed men will not arrest Uboh. Uboh’s lawyer then asked the court to rule on bail, which is the matter slated for today. The court adjourned till Friday, May 31, 2019. Uboh granted interview at the court premises asking the judiciary to protect whistleblowers and investigative reporters who are being victimized, contrary to the whistleblowers policy rolled out by President Buhari on December 15, 2016.
