The Department of State Services (DSS) has has freed the Publisher/Editor-in-Chief of Newsdiary online, Danlami Nmodu, after a brief questioning session with him.
The meeting held at the headquarters of the Agency in Abuja, it was gathered.
The publisher was questioned over the newspaper’s stories on the Kano Ecological Fund project.
It was further gathered that Nmodu was allowed to go following the satisfactory responses he had provided regarding the story.
Recall that a DSS operative who called Danlami by telephone on Wednesday morning, said the invitation was with respect to a story recently published on the Kano Ecological Fund projects.
He was asked to come either Wednesday or Thursday morning.
It could be recalled that Newsdiary online had published a story, titled: “Diplomatic backlash, legal tussle loom as FG dumps German firm over Kano Project.”
After publishing the story, the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, made further facts available through a rejoinder, which clarified the issues.
The Federal Government’s equally illuminating rejoinder was copiously published by the newspaper.
The online newspaper was also among those who went for an on-the-spot assessment of the Challawa, Sharada and Bompai N2.6 billion ecological projects in Kano in the aftermath of the Newsdiary online story.
However, highly placed sources said on Wednesday that the DSS may be investigating how some documents quoted by Newsdiary online leaked.
