EFCC Releases Ex-Governor Of Abia State, Theodore Orji on Bail

EFCC has released the Ex-Governor of Abia State, Theodore Orji on bail.

Senator Orji, who was apprehended by officers of the Commission on his way to London at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, was taken to their command post for interrogation after which he was granted bail on that same day.

According to the commission, Senator Orji is being interrogated over corrupt monetary dealing during his tenure as a Governor between the year 2007 and 2015. 

The commission added that sometime last year, Senator Orji had approached the agency and asked for the release of his travel documents to enable him go for medical treatment in Dubai.

However, the commission noted that the serving Senator failed to return the travel document. 

The EFCC said it has asked Senator Orji to report at their headquarters again on Friday for the continuation of his questioning. 

Meanwhile, the Senator denied being detained by the EFCC. He claimed that the officials of the commission only accosted him as he was on his way to London for a routine medical check up.
