The Protection Rights of Journalists of Africa (PRJA) has called for the immediate and unconditional release of the two journalists arrested in Kaduna state by State Security Service (SSS) operatives. The association made the call in a statement issued by its President Mr Adamu Gwarzo in Kano Tuesday.
The statement, which condemned the arrest, described the action of the SSS as "unfortunate and disappointing." We call for the immediate and unconditional release of the two journalists writing for the popular Hausa newspaper, Al-Mizan. PRJA is disappointed and concerned about the development," it said.
