Why David Hundeyin was Detained in Zimbabwe

David Hundeyin, a Nigerian independent journalist, has been detained in Harare Airport, Zimbabwe.

iexclusivenews reports that Hundeyin raised the alarm over his detention at the airport in a series of tweets on Wednesday night.

“I landed in Zimbabwe earlier today, and I have been detained at Harare Airport inside a smelly locked room for nearly 7 hours,” he said. “They said that despite using the travel document of a country with a visa-free relationship, my nationality is still Nigerian, and thus, I need a visa.”

Sharing photos of himself and another lady, Mr Hundeyin said he and the Ugandan lady were locked in a room for over 8 hours.

“Alongside a lady from Uganda (also a visa-free country), I have been locked in a room with no windows or toilet, plus a bottle of pee on the floor,” Mr Hundeyin said.

David later tweeted this.. “I’ve been allowed to use the loo for the first time in 10 hours, and I’ve been assured that I will be allowed to catch my exit flight.

I will keep updating until I board and have my passport returned to me.
