He was arrested today while filming around Ikeja Lagos using remote helicopter.
Here is his Facebook update:
“Just been arrested with my team from the UK by Lagos TV for taking aerial shots of Lagos around Shoprite Ikeja using remote helicopters. As a media house they should understand what we are trying to do. But they want to put me in jail for making Lagos look great. I am resined to my fate and allowed God to take control. Challenges we face in trying to grown the industry. Pray for me and pray for Nigeria #free-obi”
Remember him in your prayers for freedom.
