Detained Nigerian Journalist Freed After 2 Years
For Jones Abiri, he tasted the painful part of journalism for two years since his arrest and detention in 2016.
Abiri was detained by the State Security Service without trial over allegations he was linked to armed militancy in the Niger Delta.
Pressure from local and international groups for the unconditional release of the publisher and Editor-in-chief of Weekly Source Newspaper met a brick wall.
He was finally released on Wednesday evening after meeting his bail conditions, according to Premium Times.
However, Abiri’s lawyer, Samuel Ogala, said his client’s trial continues at the Abuja magistrate court in Zone 2, Wuse on Thursday.
