Abuja - After three months in custody, a former Military Assistant in the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA), Col. Nicholas Ashinze, was released on Wednesday by military authorities.
His release came 10 days after the court ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Nigerian Army to free him from custody.
Ashinze was quizzed on the $2.1billion arms deals including alleged whereabouts of N10billion allegedly belonging to a former National Security Adviser, Gen. Owoye Azazi.
A statement by Ashinze’s counsel, Mike Ozekhome (SAN) said his release from custody is, no doubt, a great triumph for the rule of law, re-establishment of the sanctity and independence of the judiciary
