Agba Jalingo: Social Media Reacts To Gov. Ayade’s Claims

Social media users are reacting to claims made by Cross River state governor, Ben Ayade, that detained journalist, Agba Jalingo tried to overthrow President Muhammadu Buhari.

Jalingo, who is the publisher of CrossRiverWatch, was arrested over a report alleging that Mr Ayade diverted N500 million belonging to the state.

Ayade had said that Jalingo’s arrest had to do with the #RevolutionNow movement and he was standing trial for treason.

“On his Facebook page, he sent pictures where he was being teargassed at the revolution march in Lagos. His own pictures, posted by himself and when Sowore was being arrested, he went back to his Facebook to post that the revolution has just started, ‘we will continue this battle until revolution works’. He admitted this in Court,” Ayade said.

However, Twitter users rubbished Ayade’s claims and called for the release of Jalingo.
