Youth Corps member allegedly imprisoned for criticizing University management
A Corps member identified as Chijioke Nnamani has been reportedly imprisoned for criticizing management of his former University.
According to a report that has since gone viral on social media, Nnamani was allegedly arrested and jailed after he made a post on social media, calling out the school he graduated from, over their alleged poor treatment of their teaching staff.
According to another viral posts circulating on twitter calling for the release of Chijioke Nnamani, with the trending hashtag #FreeNnamani, the man is billed to appear before a Federal High Court in Awka on Monday, today.
Trouble started for Nnamani after he published a post on social media that reads:
Friends and family are now calling for his freedom, one of them wrote:

Nigerians while reacting to the corps member’s arrest and detention, have decried that rate of injustice being perpetuated across the country by the law enforcement agencies that are saddled with the responsibilities of upholding the law.
