On Thursday evening, January 30, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, have released a former senator who represented the Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Senator Shehu Sani from custody.
He was released after reaching his bail conditions.
An aide to the former senator, Suleiman Ahmed, said his boss was released around 6pm.
Sani has been under EFCC custody for alleged name-dropping and extortion of $24,000.
He spent four weeks in the EFCC custody before being released on Thursday evening.
An EFCC official confirmed the development.
Recall that a Federal High Court in Abuja had, on Monday, granted bail to the former senator in the sum of N10m.
The judge, Justice Inyang Ekwo, granted his bail application after Sani was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on two counts of fraud involving alleged extortion of $25,000 from a businessman in November 2019.
