Abuja - Amnesty International, the human rights group, welcomed the release of a man who posted images of an alleged attempted jail break at the State Security Service in Abuja on social media platforms.
Nigerian authorities recently released Yusuf Siyaka Onimisia after, according to Amnesty, he was held incommunicado since 30 March.
His release follows an online campaign for his freedom.
At the time, the government claimed that there had been an attempted jail break by suspected Boko Haram members at the State Security Services Headquarters.
An investigation launched by the government is still ongoing.
"He (Onimisia) is now staying with his family in Abuja. Yusuf's brother told Amnesty International that his family was grateful for our support during a difficult time," Amnesty stated on Tuesday.
The organization expressed gratitude to all who sent appeals for the release of Onimisia.
"No further action will be required," it added.
