Ayodele Samuel Oloye, the publisher of Taraba Truth and Facts newspaper and CEO of Rock FM 92.3 in Jalingo, Taraba State, has been arraigned in court by the police in Jalingo.

Oloye was arraigned in court on Tuesday hours after he released a statement saying he was to be arrested by some agents of the Taraba State Government over a publication he made.

Speaking to FIJ, Oloye said “the Taraba State Government is angry with some of our reports,” specifically over a report where he stated that Governor Darius Ishaku had “plans to sell the Taraba liaison office”.

He also said that he was arrested by the police for “inciting the public against the governor and defamation of character”.

“Last Wednesday, we took up plights of teachers who were owed 14 months salaries on a programme I anchored. I was told it infuriated the governor and they started looking for our past reports in the newspaper, Taraba Truth and Facts,” he said.

In the press statement sent to FIJ on Monday, Oloye said there had been plots against him in the government house, supervised by Governor Darius Ishaku’s aides.

“I wish to bring to the notice of the general public threats to my life by agents of the Taraba State Government through the aide-de-camp to Governor Darius Ishaku and some top government officials in the state,” he said.
