Shehu Sani regains freedom after 30 days in EFCC custody
Shehu Sani, a former senator, was released from custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) after perfecting his bail conditions on Thursday.
Sani was arrested on December 31, 2019, and he remained in custody of the EFCC since then.
He was arraigned on two counts of bribery at a federal high court in Abuja two days ago.
Culled from TheCable, the EFCC accused the former senator of extorting $15,000 from one Sani Dauda in November 20, 2019, promising to give it to Ibrahim Muhammad, the chief justice of Nigeria, in other to influence some pending cases in court.
He was also alleged to have collected $10,000 from Dauda to bribe Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the EFCC.
He has since denied all the allegations preferred against him.
Inyang Ekwo, the trial judge, granted a N10 million bail to Sani, ordering him to produce one surety who has landed property that is worth the bail sum.
Sani was released on Friday evening after he met the conditions for bail.
