‎The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) yesterday said it had no knowledge of the arrest of Ahmed Salkida, a journalist earlier declared wanted by the military over alleged connection to Boko Haram militants.
The Defence spokesman, Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar, told Daily Trust  that the military had no knowledge of his arrest at the time of filing this report last night.
Yesterday, an online medium, Sahara Reporters, carried a story that Salkida was arrested at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.
According to the report, the journalist was arrested by security forces  at   the door of the Emirates Flight EK785 aircraft that brought him to Abuja
Salkida was declared wanted by the army alongside two others after a recent release of a video showing the abducted Chibok schoolgirls in custody of the Boko Haram.
Salkida had said that he was not on the run and would make himself available to the security forces as soon as he was able to get a flight ticket to Nigeria from his base in Dubai, UAE.
