The former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has been released on Friday after spending more than two months in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, his media adviser said.
Premium Times learn that Mr. Fani-Kayode was released Friday evening, and that he was likely travel from Lagos where he was held, to Abuja later tonight.
Mr. Fani-Kayode had been in detention since his arrest on May 9, 2016, in Abuja.
He was later transferred to Lagos where the EFCC slammed a 17-count charge on him, accusing the former minister of misappropriating government money.
After weeks in detention, Mr. Fani-Kayode was granted a N250 million bail on July 4, but he was still kept in custody pending his meeting the requirements for his bail.
