#FakeGovt: Daily Trust Journalist Released After Abduction by Armed Policemen
The House of Representatives correspondent of Daily Trust Newspaper, Mr. Musa Abdullahi Krishi, who was abducted at the National Assembly complex on Tuesday by armed policemen, has been released following public outcry and condemnations.
Krishi was released few minutes ago.
Recall that Krishi was handed over to armed policemen by the national assembly divisional crime officer (DCO), Dele Olaoye.
The operatives whisked the reporter into an unmarked Toyota Hilux SUV and sped off.
The Police authority, who has been on the trail of Krishi, has failed to inform Daily Trust on why the fearless journalist was abducted by armed policemen.
Krishi’s arrest comes a week after Tony Ezimakor, Abuja bureau chief of Daily Independent Newspaper, was released after being detained at the Department of State Services (DSS) headquarters for over five days, over a story he published. Ezimakor was asked to disclose his source of information as part of the conditions for his release.
