Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has released a former Chief of Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Adesola Amosu (rtd) from its custody.
Amosu, who was arrested sometime in January, was released some days ago, pending when the anti-graft agency will prefer charges against him.
Also released from the custody of the EFCC, is a former Head of Budget of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF), Air Vice Marshal J.B Adigun, and AVM R.A. Ojuawo.

The officers were released after the anti-graft agency had seized some properties from them.
Amosu, Adigun and many other senior officers, were alleged to have abused their offices in the arms procurement processes.
The arms probe panel had, in its second interim report, indicted 17 retired and serving officers, and 21 companies.
Subsequently, President Muhammadu Buhari directed the EFCC to commence immediate investigation of all the indicted officers and companies.
