Nigeria: Journalist released on bail: Agba Jalingo

, Index number: AFR 44/1866/2020

Journalist Agba Jalingo has been released on bail from Calabar Prison, Cross River state, southern Nigeria. However, Agba Jalingo and human rights defenders Omoyele Sowore and Olawale Adebayo Bakare continue to face trumped-up charges of treason because they demanded government accountability. They face a life sentence if they are found guilty of these charges. All charges against the journalist and human rights defenders must be immediately and unconditionally dropped.
