The State Security Service, SSS, has finally released former Politics Editor of Daily Trust, Ibrahim Dan-Halilu, 11 days after he was arrested at his Kaduna residence.
Mr Dan-Halilu was arrested by the intelligence agency over a Facebook post he made allegedly “supporting” #RevolutionNow, a group agitating for a revolution in the country over alleged ‘abysmal governance and inept leadership’ by the political class.
An intelligence operative with the SSS told PRNigeria that the erstwhile Mr Dan-Halilu was finally released in Kaduna at about 6pm on Friday, and has since been re-united with his family.
Mr Dan-Halilu, after a preliminary investigation was released penultimate Wednesday, but was again re-arrested after the operatives of SSS in Kaduna received a directive from Abuja that he should be made to undergo further thorough investigation and ‘rigorous’ questioning.
A family source who prefers to remain anonymous confirmed that Mr Dan-Halilu has been released and is happy to be re-united with his loved ones after a long while.
