EFCC Opposes Omisore’s Bail Request, Says He Got ‘Hundreds Of Millions’ From Dasuki

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday
adduced reasons why the former Deputy Governor in Osun State, Senator
Iyiola Omisore, has remained in its custody. While opposing a bail
request Omisore filed before a High Court of the Federal Capital
Territory at Maitama, the anti-graft agency said its investigations
revealed that the detained erstwhile governorship candidate of the
Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) received huge sums of money from the
former National Security Adviser (NSA) Col. Sambo Dasuki, retd. EFCC
said it had yet to uncover what the funds which it said was
transferred in hundreds of millions to Omisore was used for. It said
the applicant had no justification for the money he received from the
former NSA. The Commission stated this after Omisore, through his lead
counsel, Chief Chris Uche, SAN, begged Justice Olukayode Adeniyi to
order his immediate release from detention.
