More details have emerged about the 12-day detention of the Editor of FirstNews Online Newspaper, Mr. Segun Olatunji and the bizarre manner of his release by masked men believed to be officials of the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA).

Reports say he was released to the General Secretary of the Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE), Mr. Iyobosa Uwugiaren and the Deputy Editor (Nation’s Capital) of THE NATION Newspapers, Mr. Yomi Odunuga, under a bridge in Asokoro, Abuja.

The security goons were masked with the number plates of their vehicles covered up.

All the documents for his release were signed inside a security vehicle with heavily armed operatives this Thursday morning, March 28, 2024.

Upon enquiry by the NGE sureties, one of the security men simply said he was arrested for “terrorism.”

The cheering news of his planned release was first conveyed to the Publisher of FirstNews, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, by the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, via a phone call on Wednesday night.
