Ahmed Bolori and Aisha Wakil, two of the three suspects declared wanted by the Army over alleged ties with the Boko Haram terror group, have been granted administrative bail.

Reports said on Thursday that they were freed on bail after meeting bail conditions such as the submission of their international passport to Army authorities.

Bolori and Wakil were declared wanted on Sunday along with another suspect, Nigerian journalist, Ahmed Salkida, based in the United Arab Emirates.

The Army is investigating their roles, if any, in the release of Boko Haram propaganda, such as the recent video of about 50 Chibok schoolgirls who were kidnapped by the killer sect in 2014.

The two suspect handed themselves over to the Army soon after they were declared wanted and said they were not on the run and had no links with the sect.
