He regained freedom on Friday night.

The lawmaker’s release was confirmed by the Police Public Relation Officer, PPRO, Taraba State command, DSP David Misar.

According to DSP Misar, “We are aware that he has been released and he came back home”.

A family source who spoke on condition of anonymity revealed that Muhammed upon his arrival, was admitted at the Federal Medical Center, Jalingo.
