Apostle Bodmas Kemepade, an aide on New Media to the Bayelsa state government has been released by the Department of State Services, following his arrest on Wednesday.
Bodmas was arrested by the DSS over alleged ‘inciting’ following his comments on the state of insecurity in the country.
His release was announced on Thursday by the President of Niger Delta Creek Movement, Comrade Timipre Ndoni.
“All thanks to God Almighty and to all Ijaw Youths, Apostle Bodmas Prince Kemepadei as regain freedom,” Ndoni wrote.
Meanwhile, the Bayelsa state government had earlier distanced itself from Bodmas’ comments, saying he spoke for himself as a Nigerian and not for the government.
