4-month after: Weekly Source publisher, Jones Abiri still in DSS custody

Today is making four months; the publisher of Weekly Source newspaper Chief Jones Abiri was arrested by security operatives from the Department of State Services (DSS) in Yenagoa for alleged acts of terrorism.
He was arrested on July 21, 2016 and ever since he’s still in their custody without charging him court.
However, his lawyer had approached a Yenagoa High Court to seek redress on his  fundamental human rights as his continuous detention is against the rule of law.
The presiding judge however ruled that the suspected accuse should be charged to court although he’s allegedly committed capital offence.
The DSS lawyer hailed the ruling of the presiding judge and told the court that DSS is still investigating other members of the group, saying that the DSS will charge him to court as soon as investigations are over.
As at the time this report, Chief Jones is languishing in DSS custody as they are yet to charge him to court as directed by the judge in Yenagoa two months ago.
His family, lawyers and friends are not allowed to visit him at Abuja where he’s been detained.
