Written by Tunde Adeyemi on October 26, 2023
The Former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa has been released from the custody of the Department of State Service (DSS).
This is contained in a two-paragraph press statement by the Secret Agency’s spokesman, Peter Afunanya, Wednesday night
Bawa was arrested by the DSS shortly after he was suspended as the chairman of the EFCC by President Bola Tinubu on the 14th of June 2023, over allegations of abuse of office
The Director of Information at the SGF office, Willie Bassey said the move is to allow for a thorough probe into the allegations.
In the wake of his suspension and arrest by the DSS, a former Governor of Zamfara State Bello Matawalle had also accused Bawa of seeking a $2 million bribe from him, an allegation denied by the ex-EFCC chief.
