The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Wednesday morning released Deputy Senate President, Dr. Ike Ekweremadu, on administrative bail.
The deputy Senate President was grilled for hours on Tuesday by EFCC operatives over allegations of fraud and money laundering.
He was asked questions bordering on his local and foreign assets.
He had been invited to the commission’s Abuja headquarters last week Tuesday after policemen barricaded his official residence at Apo Legislative Quarters.
The mice, which was later discovered to be an attempt by the leadership of the All Progressives Congress to get him and Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, impeached failed.
Saraki turned up at the Senate and informed senators of the defection of 15 colleagues from APC to the Peoples Democratic Party.
Saraki returned to PDP on Tuesday evening.
