In a post on his Facebook page, popular Nigerian novelist, Sam Omatseye, alleged that Simon Lalong was the last person who was released from detention. He stated that Lalong was the last person who was released out of the people that were detained to provide original land documents.
He alleged that while Lalong had already signed his way out of jail, and was on his way downstairs, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) were making arrangements for the judge to re-arrest him. But he was informed to take another way out. However, Omatseye strongly believes that although Lalong was the last person who was released, they still wanted to detain him.
He said, “Lalong was the last person they released. He had already signed to leave the jail. But when he was going downstairs, the EFCC was arranging for the judge to re-arrest him. But some people, including policemen in the building, alerted him and asked him to take a way out before they got to him.”
