DSS allegedly arrests and detains Israeli filmmakers for 'supporting IPOB'



The Israeli Foreign Ministry has accused the Nigerian police of arresting three Israelis who were shooting a documentary in southeast Nigeria.



Times of Israel reported that a Zionist activist, Rudy Rochman, filmmaker Noam Leibman and French-Israeli Journalist E. David Benaym were allegedly arrested last week when they visited Ogidi village, Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State to shoot a documentary.



The Israelis were in Nigeria to film “We Were Never Lost,” a documentary exploring Jewish communities in African countries such as Kenya, Madagascar, Uganda, and Nigeria. They took off from Ben Gurion Airport on July 5 and landed in Nigeria the next day.



Locals said the SSS operatives allegedly interrogated and detained the crew at a synagogue during Friday night services in Ogidi, before taking them to Abuja.
