Former AIT presenter, Ohimai Amaize granted asylum in the United States

 

   Ohimai Amaize, a former AIT presenter who fled Nigeria last year, has been granted asylum in the United States.

    Mr Amaize, 35, departed Abuja in June 2019 following claims he was being trailed by Nigerian security agents with intention to arrest and charge him for treason and incitement.

   The alleged plots stemmed from a confrontation between the government and AIT and its flagship morning show, ‘Kakaaki Social’, a user-generated programme which Mr Amaize was anchoring at the time.
