The Federal Capital Territory, FCT, command of the Nigeria Police Force has granted CrossRiverWatch Publisher, Citizen Agba Jalingo bail after hiding him from his lawyers and other activists for hours.

Mr. Jalingo was arrested at his Ogudu residence in Lagos State on Friday following a petition from Mrs. Elizabeth Alami Ayade, the wife of Mr. Frank Ayade who is a sibling of Cross River Governor, Senator Ben Ayade for alleged defamation and infringement of her integrity.

He was then flown to Abuja, the FCT where the policemen accompanying him, whisked him away after touching down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport and greeting some friends who were waiting for him. This led to a frantic search for his whereabouts.

The policemen had said he will be detained at the Force Criminal Investigation Department, but switched off their phones after zooming off.

Hours later at about 9:15 PM, he was eventually released to a relative who signed his bail bond and was asked to report back at the Abattoir police station on Monday morning.

He was received by the Presidential Candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore and other rights activists who had stormed the police station chanting solidarity songs.
