Monday Ubani, former second vice president of the Nigerian Bar Association has been released from detention by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission
THE Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has freed Monday Ubani, former 2nd Vice-President of Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, after spending 22 days in custody.
Ubani was arrested and detained on March 19, along with Senator Christopher Enai for failing to produce Ngozi Olejeme, former managing director of Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund, NSITF, who they both stood for as sureties.
Olojeme is facing a N6.4 billion fraud charge preferred against her by the EFCC.
Ubani had maintained his innocence over Olejeme’s disappearance, insisting that she absconded after the EFCC raided her home.
He also stated that his decision to stand surety for Olejeme was because he compelled her to return to Nigeria to face the charges against her and all effort to secure her bail was frustrated by the EFCC.
Ubani was released at about 11am on Thursday – Independent
