Image result for Abuja police release arrested Premium Times journalistsThe police in Abuja have released the two PREMIUM TIMES journalists that were arrested on Thursday afternoon, for alleged defamation.
Dapo Olorun-yomi, publisher of the newspaper, was arrested alongside the judiciary correspondent, Evelyn Okakwu, at around 5:00 p.m local time.

They were released on bail and instructed to report at the FCT Police Command Headquarters by 8:00 a.m. Friday morning.

But a highly-placed police source said the invitation could be a ploy to detain the journalists for an extended period.

The development has sparked widespread condemnation, with the Amnesty International promising to launch an investigation into the motive behind it.
