|Senator Iyiola Omisore|
via Nigerian Tribune:
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has given conditions for the release of Senator Iyiola Omisore, who was arrested in Abuja, Sunday [Jul 03] morning, after a raid and thorough search of his house.
However, Prince Diran Odeyemi, who disclosed this in a release, described the conditions given by the EFCC to release Omisore from their custody as “stringent” ones.
He said in the release:
Conditions given by EFCC in a letter handed over to Senator Omisore after several hours of interrogation asked him to produce two serving Directors in any of the Federal Ministries or Agency with landed property in millionaire quarters of Maitama or Asokoro area of Abuja, while the Sureties must submit the original C of O of the said landed properties.
We know too well of a standing instructions to serving civil servants not to stand as Sureties in any matter and wonder why EFCC is giving a condition they have already blocked.
We will approach the court to seek Sen Omisore’s release and wonder why EFCC has turned itself to an agent of persecution instead of prosecution.
