ABUJA, Nigeria ( – Legal aid organization Citizen Gavel has provided a recent update on the arrest of Nnamdi Chude, a Labour Party supporter detained on cybercrime allegations during the contentious Anambra House of Assembly elections.

According to a tweet posted by the group, which aims to connect indigent people with legal aid through technology, their legal team in Abuja met with Chude at the Cybercrime Section of Interpol.

The tweet showed that Chude is happy and confirmed that there is a petition against him. Even though he was worried at first that Chude’s arrest was related to politics, he said that based on the information he had, the case doesn’t seem to have anything to do with politics.

This statement may ease some people’s worries that the arrest was done for political reasons, but it still brings up bigger issues like freedom of speech and how Nigeria’s Cybercrime Act 2015 could be used wrongly.

Citizen Gavel’s involvement in Chude’s case shows that the group is trying to give people access to justice through social media platforms and that technology is becoming more and more important in helping people find legal help.

By helping Chude, the group brings attention to the need for legal help in cases involving freedom of speech and accusations of cybercrime.

As Chude’s case moves forward, the Nigerian public and international observers continue to keep a close eye on it to make sure that everything is clear and follows the law.

His arrest has started a national conversation about how technology, social media, and democracy need to work together in a careful way.

As Nigeria tries to deal with these problems, the outcome of Chude’s case could have big effects on future cases involving accusations of cybercrime and the possible misuse of the Cybercrime Act 2015.

Citizen Gavel’s involvement in Chude’s case also shows how technology and social media are becoming more important in promoting access to justice and human rights.

The work of the organization shows how digital platforms can be used to connect people with legal help and make legal proceedings more open.
