An activist, Inibehe Effiong, confirmed his release to at new time on Monday.

Jalingo, who is the publisher of Cross River Watch, was first arrested by the police in August 2019 on the orders of the Ben Ayade-ledCross River State Government.

He was subsequently arraigned for treason and attempting to overthrow the state government due to highly critical articles he published.
