Nigeria has released a man who was arrested for tweeting pictures of an attempted jail break at the headquarters of the intelligence agency in Abuja, a family friend told AFP Saturday.
Yusuf Siyaka Onimisi, who works for a national electricity firm, was arrested and held incommunicado for at least 11 days after tweeting the pictures.
"Yes, Yusuf Onimisi has been released. His younger brother, Sanusi Onimisi, a student at Bayero University in Kano, spoke to him by telephone earlier today," the family friend, Frank Edohor, told AFP.
