Jonathan's ex-ADC released to Nigerian army

27 February 2016, 17:03

Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has released the former aide-de-camp to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Col. Ojogbane Adegbe, to the Nigerian Army authorities.

The former ADC was released 48 hours after he slammed the anti-graft agency with a N100 million suit for "unlawful detention."

In the suit filed at the Federal High Court, his counsel, Ogwu Onoja (SAN), urged the court to declare that his client’s arrest and continued detention was unconstitutional and violated his right to personal liberty guaranteed by the 1999 Constitution.

Onoja explained that the arrest and detention of Adegbe by the EFCC violated his right to personal liberty and freedom of movement as guaranteed by Section 35 and 41 of the 1999 Constitution.

The judge, Justice Yusuf Halilu, had fixed the ruling for March 1.

Adegbe who was attending a promotion course in the United Kingdom was summoned by the army and handed over to the EFCC on February 11.

He has since revealed that he would like to have his detention reversed and receive remuneration, as well as a written apology from the agency.
