Former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has been released from detention after fulfilling the terms of his bail conditions.
His spokesman, Lere Olayinka, shared the news on his Twitter handle, @OlayinkaLere, tweeted, “Fayose just regained his freedom. He left the Federal High Court, Ikoyi a few minutes ago. We will meet @officialEFCC at the court from November 19. Thank you Nigerians.”
The Federal High Court in Lagos granted Fayose a N50m bail with two sureties in like sum last Wednesday.
Justice Mojisola Olatoregun ordered that the former governor be remanded in prison custody until he fulfilled the terms of his bail.
Fayose is facing N2.2bn fraud charges, brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
