Popular Akwa Ibom blogger of Sitippe.com, Utitofon Morgan has been detained police, alleged to have been on the orders of the former Governor of Akwa Ibom State and Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio.
Utitiofon is said to have been invited to the State Police headquarters, Ikot Akpan Abia on Monday afternoon for questioning, after Akpabio petitioned the Inspector General of the Force in Abuja, for defamation of character over a news publication that was made online.
The story was captioned “CBN probes Akpabio’s N865b unrecorded deposits in 3 banks” was published by a certain “The Fact Reporters” and this does not augur well with the Senator representing Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District.
