UPDATE: El-Rufai Regains Freedom from SSS after 15 Hours

After 15 long hours of interrogation, the Department of State Security Services has released ex-Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, from its custody in Abuja.
“Mallam El-Rufai will not be silenced. He will continue to do his patriotic duty of challenging INEC and the security agencies to guarantee the climate for free and fair elections in Nigeria by desisting from partisanship and the embrace of impunity.”
The former minister’s media advisor, Muyiwa Adekeye, said. Mallam El-Rufai, who voluntarily made himself available at the SSS headquarters around on Monday, was released after midnight.

“Mallam Nasir El-Rufai left the SSS premises at 12.35a.m today after more than 15 hours,” his aid tweeted at 12.40 on Tuesday morning.

El-Rufai has however vowed that no amount of intimidation can stop him from telling Nigerians the truth.
