Ibrahim Magu, the suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has been released on bail, ABN TV understands.
He was arrested and detained on Monday, July 6, 2020, following a summons by the presidential panel probing his activities in office.
The details of his bail are still sketchy but ABN TV was informed that he has returned to his residence in Abuja.
During his detention, Magu spent the night at Area 10, force criminal investigation department (FCID) of the police in Abuja.
His personal and official residences in Abuja were searched while his security aides were withdrawn.
He had earlier written to Mohammed Adamu, inspector-general of police, to demand bail but the IGP asked him to redirect his request to the Ayo Salami panel for appropriate attention.
Magu’s release comes hours after news broke that 12 EFCC directors had been suspended in connection with Magu’s probe.
Some of the directors affected by the action were involved in investigating Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation.
