NEWS: Nigerian Army Releases Daily Trust Maiduguri Editor


The Nigerian Army on Tuesday evening released the detained Bureau-Chief of the Daily Trust Newspaper, Uthman Abubakar.

Abubakar was picked up by the military after a raid on the Maiduguri office of the newspaper on Sunday January 6th. 

Abubakar was released this evening and is said to be in a stable condition. He was allowed to go home even though his mobile devices are still with the security operatives who released him.

Recall that Abubakar was arrested alongside a reporter for the newspaper, Ibrahim Sawab, after the Army raided their Abuja, Lagos, Kaduna and Maiduguri offices.

In a statement released on Monday, the Army said the raid was as a result of a story the newspaper published that could jeopardize national security.
