Police release BudgIT tracking officer, Moses Motoni

The police have released Moses Motoni, a tracking officer of BudgIT, a civic tech organisation, after arresting him under controversial circumstances on Tuesday.

BudgIT had blamed Sani Mohammed, senator representing Niger south, and Faruk Muhammadu, lawmaker representing Bida/Gbako/Katcha constituency in the lower legislative chamber, for the arrest.

The organisation said its tracking officer was picked up for sensitising citizens on constituency projects in Bida, Niger state.

Police said Motoni was arrested for disturbing public peace.

News of his detention had added fire to the ongoing #EndSARS campaign.
