Danjuma was, however, released on Sunday afternoon following the directives of the state police commissioner, Mr. Usman Abdullahi, and intervention from various personalities in the state.

Danjuma confirmed his release to Northern City News, pointing out that the matter had been resolved.

He said he went to the police headquarters on the invitation of the police on Saturday night, but was detained overnight.

But the state police command Public Relations Officer, DSP Gambo Isah, denied that Danjuma was detained, stressing that he was merely invited for questioning. (PUNCH)
