The Federal Capital Territory, FCT, command of the Nigeria Police Force has granted Agba Jalingo bail.

Jalingo who is the publisher of CrossRiverWatch, a Cross River State based newspaper, was arrested at his Ogudu residence in Lagos State on Friday and flown to Abuja the following day.

He was nabbed 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 character and integrity.

The Daily Crucible gathered that Jalingo was released on Saturday at about 9:15 PM 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.
