The SIM card in question was said to have been recycled and
put up for sale, after which Okolie purchased it.
A man identified as Anthony Okolie was unlawfully detained by
the Department of State Services (DSS) for 10 weeks for using
an MTN SIM card which was previously used and abandoned by
President Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter, Hanan, according to
Sahara Reporters publisher Omoyele Sowore.
“A Nigerian man, Anthony Okolie, was detained for 10 weeks for
using an MTN phone line previously used and abandoned by
President Buhari’s daughter, Hanan," Sowore shared in a tweet.
Recounting his meeting with Okolie while they were in DSS
custody, Olawale Bakare, who was arrested alongside Sowore,
stated that Okolie was released after 10 weeks in the state
Olawale, in a Twitter post, said, " Only if Nigerians know the level
of lawlessness perpetuated by the DSS in the name of 'order
from above', we will understand the danger of having a tyrant
who has no iota of respect for human rights or dignity.
"The level of arrogance and confidence of the DSS to unlawfully
detain innocent Nigerians is disgustingly obvious in their manner
of operation and approach.
"Anthony Okolie who happened to be my cellmate at the DSS
facility even got lucky to have spent only 10 weeks for
committing no offence according to a Senior Intelligence
"Till now, no one, including Anthony, knows his offence."
Olawale further disclosed that Okolie regained his freedom after
being told " You're now forgiven ".
