Who was the silly journalist that asked "Were you in love with her?" "Or why did you remove the condom?"

Did you follow the case at all?

From that Press Release:
Frank Uduak Akpan doesn't look like someone who has spent more than one week in a Nigerian Police Station.
The tone of his voice and his composure bespeak one who has the backing of a higher authority.
The journalists were insensitive & unprofessional.
