The immediate former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa has been released by the Department of State Services (DSS).
Bawa has been in custody of the secret police since June when President Bola Tinubu suspended him.
The Director of Information at the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Willie Bassey had said Bawa was suspended as a result of weighty allegations of abuse of office levelled against him.
Recall that a former governor of Zamfara State and Minister of State for Defence, Bello Matawalle, had accused Bawa of demanding $2 million bribe from him, an allegation which he denied.
Bassey had said suspension was to allow for proper investigation into his conduct while in office.
Meanwhile, the time Bawa was released could not be ascertained, but a video showed Bawa been welcomed by his wives and children.
