How Onimisi Ciaxon Who Tweeted Boko Haram Jailbreak Photos Was Arrested Allegedly By SSS
Eyewitnesses have identified “Yussuf Isiaka aka “Onimisi Ciaxon,” who tweeted photos of the Boko Haram jailbreak at the headquarters of the State Security Services (SSS) in Abuja on March 30, 2014, as “Yussuf,” a member of staff of PHCN who worked at the T-junction by State House Gate-7.
Yussuf, whose last was given as Isiaka is an Ebira from Kogi state. He was arrested soon after his tweets, and has not been seen since then reports Sahara Reporters.
The eyewitnesses say he had worked the night shift the night before at a PHCN substation near the Presidential Villa as an engineer, and was waiting for his colleagues to arrive for work that morning so he could go home, when the security incident occurred.
Yusuf is said to be widely-known in the area, and to be a friend to most of the DSS and military intelligence personnel who take shifts at the Gate-7. Our sources say they all normally interact and share jokes as there is hardly any activity or threat in that neighbourhood. Gate-7 is rarely in use.
Ironically, it was the same friends who handed him over when one of the security personnel received a call informing him of pictures of the attack appearing online, leading to questions as to how the picture went viral while the shooting was ongoing.
Yusuf was reportedly handed over to a security team, which descended on him with punches and gun butts before taking him into a nearby building. Yussuf is also said to have witnessed the summary killing of two Boko Haram boys who were caught in the bush behind the DSS building. Both boys, who only spoke Kanuri, were reportedly executed on the spot after they had surrendered.
The source expressed surprise only Yusuf was arrested, as some of the security personnel also took pictures. Meanwhile, his Toyota Camry car is still parked in the PHCN compound at DSS/State House Gate-7 as friends express fear that he might have been killed or seriously injured.
