The judge stated that the EFCC had no right to detain an individual at will, adding that it was unconstitutional for the agency to keep Adegbe in detention for more than 24 hours
Adegbe has been in custody of the anti-graft agency since February 11, for allegedly collecting N10bn from the Office of the National Security Adviser, ONSA.
