The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has on Friday released a former Deputy Governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore, after 19 days in detention. He was allegedly released on bail by the commission after meeting his bail conditions.
The former deputy governor, who was declared wanted by the EFCC in May, was arrested on July 3, 2016 after N1.310bn was traced to the accounts of five companies allegedly belonging to him.
The money was said to be part of the N4.7bn allegedly disbursed by a former Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro and his two sons, Gbolahan and Babajide.
Omisore had, however, denied receiving any money from the ONSA.
Meanwhile, it was learnt that the anti-graft agency will soon charge Omisore for N4.7bn.
