A member of the Federal House of Representatives, Hon. Abubakar Lado who was arrested and detained for three days at the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad detention facility in Abuja has been released.
The lawmaker was released on Wednesday, October 10, 2018 after the House of Representatives passed a resolution for his immediate release.
The House had threatened to summon the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, if the police failed to release the lawmaker before midnight of Wednesday. He was released and reported to the House on Thursday.
The House Leader, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, who had earlier on Wednesday proposed a motion for the summoning of the IG, asked that the matter be rested. Lado rose to thank his colleagues for coming to his assistance. He simply said that his arrest was “political.”
