The Nigeria Police Force on Wednesday, released a member of the House of Representatives, Mr Abubakar Lado, from the detention.

The Rep. member, who spent three days at the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad detention facility in Abuja, was released after the House passed a resolution for his immediate release.

Concise News recalls that the House had threatened to summon Ibrahim Idris, the Inspector-General of Police if the force failed to release Lado before midnight of Wednesday.

However, the police met the deadline given by the House as it released Lado on Wednesday and he reported to the House on Thursday.

Femi Gbajabiamila, the House Leader, who had earlier on Wednesday proposed a motion for the summoning of the IG, asked that the matter be rested.

Meanwhile, Lado rose to thank his colleagues for coming to his assistance during the session of the House on Thursday.

The Rep. member simply said that his arrest and subsequent detention by the police was “political.”
