Premium Times reporter, Samuel Ogundipe arrested by Nigerian Police force on Tuesday has been released on bail.


Ogundipe was freed on Friday after he was granted bail by magistrate Abdulwahab Mohammed of the Kubwa Grade 1 Magistrate Court in Kubwa, Abuja.

The nation was outraged when Ogundipe was whisked away for publishing a report sent to acting president Yemi Osinbajo by the inspector general of police, Ibrahim Idris, on events that took place at the National Assembly on August 7.

The Nigerian Union of Journalists, local and international rights bodies as well as political figures called for Ogundipe’s immediate release.

His release comes a day after Jones Abiri, another Nigerian journalist who was detained for two years without trial over allegations he was linked to militants in the oil-rich Niger delta, was set free.
