Otunba Femi Davies, a prominent media practitioner and president of the Society of Digital Newspaper Owners of Nigeria (SDNON), has been detained by the Department of State Services (DSS) in Abeokuta, sparking concerns over his wellbeing and rights.

Davies, a respected figure in the media industry, was summoned by DSS Officer Michael for questioning in connection with an ongoing investigation. Responding to the invitation, Davies cooperated and presented himself at the DSS office in Abeokuta. However, since his arrival, he has been held incommunicado, raising alarm among his family, colleagues, and associates.
The circumstances surrounding his detention have raised eyebrows, as he is not a political figure but rather a dedicated media professional. His detention without clear allegations or charges has raised questions about due process and potential political motivations.
“We are deeply troubled by the detention of Otunba Femi Davies and call for his immediate release. This arbitrary detention goes against the principles of justice and fairness. We urge the DSS to provide transparent and valid reasons for his continued captivity,” emphasized the secretary of SDNON, Mr. Seunmanuel Faleye.Davies
