This is a new development on the last report Concise obtained about EFCC’s releases today Saturday. It was earlier reported that EFCC released Obanikoro while holding on to Abati.

Concise News learnt that Abati’s bail conditions include submission of his international passport to EFCC and producing a surety, who should not be below a deputy director on Level 16 in the civil service of the country.

The ex-presidential aide turned himself to the EFCC on October 21 after he was accused of receiving N50 million from detained former National Security Adviser, retired Col. Sambo Dasuki.
