A court has ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to release”immediately” Ojogbanna Adegbe, former aide-de-camp to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan. Adegbe, a colonel, was interrogated by the anti-graft commission over his role in the diversion of N10 billion believed to have been shared to Jonathan’s Peoples Democratic Party, PDP members. Ruling Justice Yusuf Halilu asked the EFCC to grant Adegbe bail on liberal terms, while chiding the agency for reducing itself to a “police station”. The judge pointed that it was unconstitutional for the EFCC to detain anyone at will. Based on his detention, which the EFCC claimed was directed by the army authorities, the embattled Adegbe instituted a fundamental rights suit against the commission. The judge further stated that his order was equally binding on the army authorities believed to be currently holding Adegbe after he was transferred from the EFCC custody.
