Nigerians Panic, Mobilise Globally as Idolized Journalist David Hundeyin Tweets from Zimbabwean Airport’s Holding room!

Frontline investigative journalist and treasure of Nigerians worldwide, Mr David Hundeyin, threw Nigerians into panic mode as tweets from his verified twitter handle (@DavidHundeyin), at around 20.32pm GMT late night wednessday 19th, began to reveal he was under detention for the past 7 hours in a Zimbabwean airpot holding room

From Hundeyin tweets it revealed he was headed to Ethiopia via Zimbabwe, but was stopped by Zimbabwean immigrations with the excuse that he is Nigerian national, and needed a visa, regardless of valid travel documents showing he lived legally in the UK

According to Hundeyin, Zimbabwean immigrations locked him up in a windowless holding room for 8 hours with no food, no access to the toilet; and was denied human contact aside from a fellow detainee, a lady from Uganda who was held in same room

On his handle Hundeyin tweeted:

I landed in Zimbabwe earlier today, and I have been detained at Harare Airport inside a smelly locked room for nearly 7 hours. They said that despite using the travel document of a country with a visa-free relationship, my nationality is still Nigerian, and thus, I need a visa”

I was processed for removal from their country and locked in a tiny room, but I have heard nothing from anyone for several hours. Alongside a lady from Uganda (also a visa-free country), I have been locked in a room with no windows or toilet, plus a bottle of pee on the floor”

No one appears to be in charge of anything, and even though my return flight to Addis has been rescheduled for tonight, I am still locked in this room, and I risk missing my flight. They appear to have forgotten that they have people in detention here

I am ready to hop on my flight and never come back to Zimbabwe for the rest of my life. Please, someone out there who is actually in charge of something should let me go so I can be on my merry way. I’m not interested in visiting Zimbabwe anymore. I want to go home. Please.”

Reactions from multitudes of fans on his timeline showing solidarity and support :

As at press time Hundeyin was still in the custody of Zimbabwean immigrations….

Updates soon….
