Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Pius Anyim has been released from the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Reports suggest the anti-graft agency withheld his international passport before letting him go on Tuesday night.

Anyim, a former Senate President, was arrested over alleged contract fraud and false assets declaration.

The EFCC had earlier told him to return N520m he allegedly took from former National Security Adviser Sambo Dasuki or face prosecution.

Anyim was also accused of awarding contracts to some companies linked to him through which ecological funds were allegedly diverted.

The agency had said it had got an extended warrant to detain Anyim for 30 days.
