Ajaero said that the officials were released on Thursday night after staying for more than a month in custody.
The released officials were the National President, Tajudeen Baruwa, General Secretary, Anthony Chukudi, Olayi Odion, National Trustee and Principal Assistant Secretary, Abdulrasak Yemi.
Recall that the National Executive Council (NEC) had during its meeting on Aug. 31 condemned the Police’s action and called for the release of the NURTW leadership.
