Salihu Yakasai has been launched by the Division of State Providers (DSS).
A member of the family confirmed his freedom Monday evening.
“Alhamdulilah. My brother @dawisu is out. Thanks all! #freedawisu,” Abdullahi Yakasai tweeted.
The previous aide to Kano Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, was arrested after he requested President Muhammadu Buhari to resign.
Yakasai made the decision final Friday after the kidnapping of a whole lot of schoolgirls from the Authorities Secondary Faculty in Zamfara State.
Nigerians and organisations condemned his arrest.
Inn response, DSS stated he was not in custody over his tweet recurring kidnappings.
