Just In: EFCC Releases Ubani From Custody

Published

Monday Ubani
 

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday released the former 2nd Vice-President of Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Monday Ubani from detention.

The NBA former Vice-President was arrested and detained on March 19, along with Senator Christopher Ania for failing to produce the former Managing Director of Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) Mrs Ngozi Olejeme who the both stood for as sureties.

Olojeme is facing an N6.4 billion fraud charge preferred against her by the EFCC.

Ubani had maintained his innocence over Olejeme’s disappearance insisting that she absconded after the EFCC raided her home.

According to him, his decision to stand surety for Olejeme was because he compelled her to return to Nigeria to face the charges against her and all effort to secure her bail was frustrated by the EFCC.

Since Ubani’s arrest, there has been a massive public outcry for his release especially after a Federal High Court order that EFCC should either release him or charge him to court.
