HARRISON GWAMNISHU LAUDS UBULU EZEMU FOR HIS FREEDOM CAMPAIGN
Renowned human rights activist, Mr Harrison Gwamnishu has applauded the publisher of Ubulu Ezemu, Mr Anthony Awunor for the role his platform played during the period of his incarceration.
Mr Gwamnishu was wrongly incarcerated and confined in prison for over two years but was later discharged and acquitted.
During this period, and aware that Gwamnishu was innocent, Ubulu Ezemu launched a vigorous campaign to see that his case was looked into by all and sundry. At the end, the campaign paid off and the Ubulu man was released.
Appreciating the kind gesture demonstrated by Ubulu Ezemu, Gwamnishu said he will continue to support the platform in any way possible.
He was speaking during the 2nd edition of Ubulu Ezemu Awards held 25th December at Viva Hotel, Ubulu-Uku.
According to the activist, “I want to use this opportunity to express my gratitude to Ubulu Ezemu. He was one of those who campaigned for my freedom during the time of my incarceration”.
For two consecutive years, Mr Gwamnishu has retained the “Human Rights Activist of The Year 2021” award at the Ubulu Ezemu Awards.
Ubulu Ezemu Awards celebrate and reward excellence to deserving indigenes and non indigenes who have contributed positively to the development of Ubulu Uku community.
Gwamnishu was recognised due to his giant strides in human rights campaigns, not only in Delta State but at the global level. He had, in many occasions fought for the rights of several individuals, who, at the end of the day were compensation for whatever bad reatments that were meted on them.
Gwamnishu became a global brand shortly after he was released from incarceration. His recorded successes and fame all over the country informed the award bestowed on him by Ubulu Ezemu.
