5 Days After, Ex-presidential Aide, Reuben Abati, is Still in EFCC Custody…See New Details
A former presidential spokesperson, Reuben Abati, who ended up in EFCC custody
over allegations of impropriety, is yet to be released.
It has been reveaed that a former presidential spokesman, Reuben Abati, is still in custody five days after he was arrested.
to Premium Times, this is because he is unable to satisfy his bail conditions.
Mr. Abati, a columnist, was arrested on Monday by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on allegations of financial impropriety to the tune of N50 million.
When operatives questioned him about how he spent the funds, Mr. Abati reportedly said he disbursed it to media practitioners in his capacity as the spokesman for the Goodluck Jonathan administration.
But he said he did not keep records of the disbursement when queried for evidence.
The journalist was subsequently granted
an administrative bail that requires presenting a senior federal civil
servant —preferably a director— with landed properties
Premim Times reports that a source within the EFCC on Friday revealed that: “He will be released when he meets his bail conditions.”
Also in EFCC custody is Bala Mohammed, a former Minister of the Federal Capital
Territory, who was taken into custody shortly after Mr. Abati’s arrest on Monday.
But Mr. Mohammed’s case
is said to be more complicated and he may not be released anytime soon.
