Daniel Ojukwu, who is a journalist with the Foundation for Investigative Journalism (FIJ), has regained his freedom.

Ojukwu was abducted by the Intelligence Response Team of the Inspector General of Police.

However, he has regained freedom on Friday, after 10 days in police captivity.

FIJ confirmed this on Friday on its website.

Ojukwu was said to have gone missing on Wednesday and was unreachable as his numbers were switched off and his whereabouts unknown to colleagues, family and friends.

Twenty-four hours after he went missing, FIJ made a missing person report at police stations in the area where Ojukwu was headed.

Ojukwu went missing on Wednesday, May 1, his numbers were switched off and his whereabouts were unknown to colleagues, family and friends.

However, a private detective hired by FIJ tracked the last active location of his phones to an address in Isheri Olofin, a location FIJ now believes was where the police originally picked him up.
