The Digital Media Practitioners of Nigeria DMPN has reacted to the assault on their member Pamilerin promoting an official Press release.
The statement reads:
them to issue an official press release regarding the matter.
*As a responsible association, the Digital Media Practitioners of Nigeria,* has conducted preliminary investigations into the occurrence, hearing from the physically abused *Pamilerin* himself and other eyewitnesses of the said assault.
We must reiterate that as a civil society, the right thing to do is to settle misunderstandings either mutually through dialogue, law enforcement agencies or in a court of Law. We have zero tolerance for those who take the law into their hands, those who feel they are above the law and those who wish to use their privileges for the oppression of other members of the society.
Therefore we condemn Peruzzi’s actions in strong terms and are already in talks with our legal department to explore the next *course* of action.
Our gratitude goes out to everyone who has shown solidarity against oppression of freedom of speech and expression.
