According to Punch, Apostle Suleiman was interrogated by the state security agents for about three hours.
He was said to have been released by the DSS at about 10:45 pm amidst cheers from members of his congregation, friends and family members.
Phrank Shaibu, communications adviser to Apostle Suleiman, promised to give newsmen more details about what transpired at the DSS office, on Tuesday.
“Apostle Suleman has been allowed to go. The DSS exhibited high level of maturity, competence and professionalism”, Shaibu said.
