ENUGU- The Igbo National Council (INC)  Worldwide Under the Leadership of Comrade Chilos Godsent and other Principal Officers had frowned at the unlawful detention of Comrade Agba Jalingo by  the Security Agencies, Department of State Security  (DSS) as the health of the young man deteriorates in the Prison Custody.

  INC Leadership in a Press Statement made available to Newsmen in Enugu  as Signed by  its President, Comrade Chilos Godsent, Comrade Zulu, and  National Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emenike Bieni Stated that  Nigerians have keenly observed the reckless display of despotic tendencies by Gov Benedict Ayade of Cross River State over the popular calls from well meaning Nigerians for the unconditional release of Comrade Agba Jalingo who has been brutally incarcerated in solitary confinement since August 2019.

INC therefore noted that the health of comrade Agba Jalingo is deteriorating.

In view of the above, we therefore call on the Cross River State House of Assembly under the leadership of Rt. Hon. Jones Eteng William to pass an express motion of the House compelling Gov Benedict Ayade and his cohorts - the Cross River State Commissioner of Police and State Director, Department of State Security (DSS) to immediately release Comrade Agba Jalingo before his health deteriorates to an unmanageable state.

Consequently, the Leadership affirmed that the group will embark  on Mass protest in Cross Rivers State Capital, Calabar if  Comrade Agba Jalingo is not released before the expiration of 14th January 2020.

The Press Statement reads in part: "We will go ahead with the planned protest occupy Calabar therefore we  also call on Nigerians to occupy with SMS, the phones of the Governor and Deputy Governor of Cross River State, the Rt Hon Speaker and all principal officers of the Cross River State House of Assembly demanding the unconditional release of Comrade Agba Jalingo".
