SSS Re-Arrests Almizan Editor

SSS Re-Arrests Almizan Editor

Officials of the State Security Service (SSS) this morning re-arrested the editor of the Kaduna based vernacular newspaper, Almizan, Mallam Musa Muhammad Awwal, forty-five days after they released him on bail.

It would be recalled that the Editor was arrested alongside his reporter, Aliyu Sale on the 24th December, 2012. They were released on the January 1st, this year following pressure mounted by stakeholders in the media industry.

His wife, Hajia Hannatu said her husband was arrested by the combined team of the SSS and the Army. 

She said he was arrested around this morning and that the security ransacked their house before whisking him away.

"After the search, they went away with him, his laptop and phone. They did not molest anybody like they did the last time. When I asked them why they are arresting my husband again, they did not say anything," she said.

When Musa was released in January, he said the SSS officials did not inform him of the offence he committed that made them to keep him in their custody for eight days.
