The press conference started with a short video clip of the interview of the Gambian President that led to this recent repression. I read the press statement, followed by a presentation by Ndey and Winfred spoke about their media alert. The Secretary of the Nigerian Union of Journalists gave a solidarity message.
About 20 journalists were present including from the BBC, AFP, the Guardian, Punch and AIT. Many NGOs were there including a member of the Nigeria Bar Association and the Nigeria Union of Journalists.
Questions were asked, some of which included whether a formal complaint been filed before the ICC, and whether a formal complaint has been made to the Bar association about the Nigerian Judges in Gambia. We responded to all questions and thanks participants for their contribution. Ndey and I had some side interviews with BBC and other media houses.
