Corruption: EFCC Releases Reuben Abati



The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has released former presidential spokesperson, Reuben Abati.

Mr. Abati confirmed his release to PREMIUM TIMES on Saturday morning. He said was putting up somewhere in Abuja.

The former Chairman of editorial board of the Guardian newspaper has been in the EFCC custody since October 21, following a notice by the anti graft agency that he was being sought in connection with some unaccounted money from the office of the National Security Adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Col. Sambo Dasuki.

He was accused of receiving N50 million from the embattled Sambo Dasuki.

After initially working out a repayment of N5 million with the EFCC, Mr. Abati later told his interrogators that he woould not be able to raise any reimbursement, a stalemate that apparently prolonged his stay in custody.
