The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), yesterday late night released Ita Ekpeyong, the former director-general of the State Security Service (DSS), on administrative bail.
Mr Ekpeyong was arrested yesterday afternoon following a raid of his Abuja home by anti-graft detectives.
He was moved to the EFCC headquarters in Abuja for questioning, multiple sources said. He was subsequently released a few hours later.
A spokesperson for the EFCC declined comments on the development yesterday night.
Nigerian pilot gathered that embattled Ekpeyong was released after the EFCC agents realised he was unable to provide much information about the controversial former director of the DSS, Lawal Daura.
Sacked Daura was himself arrested after being disgraced from office by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday afternoon.
He was immediately taken into custody by federal authorities, but was freed on administrative grounds and his passports confiscated yesterday.
