Part of the speech reads; “We also hope that the Publisher, Daniel Elombah will be able to¬†travel back to his base in the United Kingdom immediately to rejoin his family.

“Freedom of speech is an inalienable right of every person and Nigerians should stand firm against any flagrant abuse of these fundamental rights without excuses!
