Former Nigerian Bar Association – NBA Ikeja branch Chairman, Barrister Monday Ubani who has been in the net of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission –EFCC for the past 24 days has been released.
However, Monday Ubani was arrested alongside Senator Christopher Ania by the EFCC on March 19, 2019.
Reports reaching www.e-nigeriang.com is that both Ubani and Ania were arrested by the EFCC for standing a surety for former Managing Director of Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund, NSITF, Ngozi Olejeme.
Olojeme is allegedly facing an N6.4billion fraud charge preferred against her by the EFCC. Ubani had maintained his innocence over Olejeme’s disappearance insisting that she absconded after the EFCC raided her home
Ubani’s arrest sparked a massive public outcry for his release especially after a Federal High Court order that EFCC should either release him or charge him to court.
