The Economic and Financial Crimes Commssion, EFCC, has released detained former Secretary to the Government of Federation, Babachir David Lawal.
TVC News gathered that Lawal was released on Administrative bail on Friday evening after spending more than 48hours in the anti-graft custody.
Lawal was detained by the EFCC on Wednesday morning after he honoured an invitation to the commission’s head office in Abuja.
The development followed Lawal’s sack by President Muhammadu Buhari on October 30.
Buhari’s action was based on the recommendation of a presidential panel that probed misuse of funds meant for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the North East.
The former SGF is accused of using his company Rholavision Engineering Ltd to corner a N200 million contract for the clearing of “evasive plant species’’ in Yobe.
