The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has released a former director General of the Obi-Datti Presidential campaign Council, Doyin Okupe.
The former presidential aide was earlier today arrested at the MMIA by the operatives of the Department State Service, who claimed to have acted at the instance of EFCC.
His arrest was later confirmed by the EFCC in a statement by his spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren.
But in a tweet on his official handle @doyinokupe, the former presidential aide said he has been released. He also claimed that senior officials of the commission apologised to him for the error committed.
“I was arrested & detained @ the MMIA, Lagos this morning, 12th Jan on my way to UK for medicals; years after my passport had been withheld by the FHC Abuja. I just left the EFCC office where Snr Officers in Lagos & Abuja appologised to me for the error.”
