Ahmad Salkida, the Nigerian journalist arrested by the country’s secret police for alleged links to Boko Haram has been released from custody, the BBC reports on Wednesday, September 7, 2016.

Salkida was reportedly arrested by the country’s secret police, the Department of State Security, DSS, when he arrived in the capital Abuja on a flight from the United Arab Emirates on Monday, September 5, 2016.

The Nigerian Army had declared the journalist, who lives in Dubai, UAE, wanted, along with two others following the release of a Chibok schoolgirls’ video by Boko Haram.

The terrorist group, reportedly, sent the video to Salkida who shared the link to a YouTube page on his Twitter handle.

The military said, last month, it wanted to question Ahmad Salkida for allegedly concealing information on the more than 200 schoolgirls kidnapped by the Islamists more than two years ago.
