Mr. Reuben Abati, the former Special Adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Media, has been granted bail by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Reports also indicated that he explained that Dasuki `dashed’ him N50 million. According to APA reports, the bail conditions require that Abati should drop his international passport with the EFCC and produce a surety, who should not be below a deputy director on Level 16 in the civil service of the country.
Abati was arrested last Monday on allegations that he received N100 million from the former National Security Adviser, rtd Col. Sambo Dasuki. The former presidential spokesman was the chairman of the editorial board of the Guardian newspaper before his appointment.
Dasuki has been held for the misappropriation of the $2.1 billion meant for the purchase of arms for the prosecution of the war against Boko Haram. Many people have been arrested in connection with the sharing of the money with some offering to refund part or all they got.
