Military Releases Detained Daily Trust Regional Editor

The regional editor, Daily Trust Newspaper, Uthman Abubakar, who was arrested, alongside a reporter, when soldiers stormed the Maiduguri office of the newspaper has been released.

The Editor-in-Chief of Daily Trust, Mannir Dan-Ali, announced the release.

He was brought back to the Maiduguri office of the newspaper by an unnamed Major who handed him over to a Security officer at the office.

Uthman, who maintains that he was courteously treated, however, said his mobile phones and laptop were still with the military.

He said they told him that they needed time to finish the forensic checks they were carrying out on the equipment.
