A Network of Journalists and Bloggers in Senegal has condemned the country’s expulsion of a Chadian blogger and refugee, Makaila Nguebla on Wednesday.

The Nework said it condemn in the “strongest terms” the arrest and expulsion of Nguebla by the Senegalese authorities to Guinea Conakry, according to a facebook post by Amadou Bamba Drame, a Ziganchor-based journalist and blogger.

Senegalese authorities accused Nguebla of having links to a “destabilisation plot” in his home country, Chad.

On May 2, 2013, officials in Chad said at least four people were killed in the capital, N’Djamena as government forces foiled a “destabilisation plot” against President Idriss Deby.

Senegal’s police said they retrieved emails allegedly exchanged between Nguebla and some of those arrested in Chad in connection to the “plot”.

However, Nguebla has told Radio France International, RFI, he has no connection with the people accused of plotting against the Government of Chad. Nonetheless, he was arrested and deported to neighboring Guinea.

Some concerned social media activists have already created a hastag (#) #freemakaila on Twitter in support of the Chadian refugee and blogger.

 

People are also being encouraged to retweet his picture (inscribed Liberez Makaila Nguebla) to help #freemakaila.

Last month, Senegal expelled Gambian dissident Kukoi Samba Sanyang from the country. Sanyang, who led a rebellion in The Gambia in 1981, was arrested and deported to the troubled West African nation of Mali.

Human rights defenders have condemned both expulsions.

Meanwhile in N’Djamena, a government statement said two army generals, and two parliamentarians (a member of the ruling coalition and an opposition member) are among people arrested over the so-called “destabilisation plot”.

 

The Central African country has experienced a long history of internal insecurity. The current President Edris Deby came to power through a coup in 1990.
