Six months after he was detained, Publisher of Cross River Watch, Agba Jalingo, has been released from prison custody.
He was released after meeting his bail condition.
He was first arrested by the police in August 2019 on the orders of the Ben Ayade-led Cross River State Government.
He was subsequently arraigned for treason and attempting to overthrow the state government due to the highly critical articles he published.
Due to his long detention, Amnesty International had declared the activist as a prisoner of conscience.
Last week there were a series of protests staged in Cross River over his detention.
