Ahmad Salkida were arrested in the city of Jos, where thousands have been killed in recent years in clashes between Christians and Muslims.
A military spokesman said the journalists "didn't get proper clearance" to work in the area. Drieu disputed the claim.
The Nigerian authorities have become increasingly sensitive about foreign reports of the unrest. Local journalists have also been attacked.
