The Nigerian journalist Ahmad Salkida, who was taken into custody on Monday September 5, weeks after being declared wanted by the army, has been released.
Premium Times reported that according to sources, Mr. Salkida was released on Tuesday evening September 6, by the State Security Service, more than a day after he was arrested at the airport in Abuja.
Mr. Salkida was declared wanted on August 14 alongside two others. The two turned themselves in the second day and were subsequently granted administrative bail.
Mr. Salkida was accused of aiding Boko Haram. Authorities also raised issues about the way he was sourcing video recordings from the sect.
He, however, denied the allegations when quizzed by SSS officials.
He was released without conditions, our sources said.
All documents and devices confiscated from him were returned.
