Fayose's Ally, Agbele Gets N5m Damages From EFCC, Secures Bail
Justice Olukayode Adeniyi of an Abuja High Court has granted bail to Abiodun Agbele, an ally of the Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose.

Agbele has been in the detention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission since June 27, 2016 when he was arrested by its operatives.

The judge described his detention by the EFCC since July 1, 2016 as illegal, awarding Agbele N5 million damages.

Justice Adeniyi faulted “the arbitrary abuse of power and unlawful detention of the applicant (Agbele) without arraigning him in court of competent jurisdiction in line with the constitution”.
