"Yes, they were released on Wednesday, but we will make official comments soon," he said.

Daily Trust also gathered that on Tuesday, the High Court in Kaduna gave an order for the three persons to be released from detention on bail.

One of the counsel to ASD, Barrister Maxwell Kyon, ‎who addressed newsmen in Kaduna, said the police authorities were served with the court order restraining them from further arresting his clients. He described the action of the police as unfortunate.

He exonerated his clients of any wrongdoing, saying the daughter ( Nusaiba) was already divorced before she remarried and had a divorce certificate from a Sharia Court in Tudun Wada.

It would be recalled that ASD and two others were arrested at the instance of his daughter's estranged husband, who kicked against her new marriage.
