A man who live-tweeted from the scene of an attempted jailbreak in Abuja 12 days ago, has disappeared. Activists believe he may have been arrested, and have launched a Twitter campaign for his release.
The man who’s behind the @ciaxon account found himself at the scene of a dramatic fight between Nigerian security forces and detainees trying to escape from the State Security Service (SSS) headquarters.
The SSS HQ is a stone’s throw from the presidential palace, and the detainees were suspected militants from the notorious group, Boko Haram. More than 20 people were killed.
