The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has released Senator Iyiola Omisore on bail after he allegedly refunded N300m, reports say.

According to Premium Times, the Senator wrote his bank to pay the anti-graft agency the sum of N170m and also presented a bank draft of N130m before he was allowed to go home.

The total sum which Omisore allegedly refunded to the EFCC came to N300m.

Omisore also allegedly confessed to receiving funds from the office of the National Security Adviser for a land which he sold to them.

The Senator had earlier denied getting any money from the embattled National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.

Punch reports that an EFCC detective said “On July 9, 2014, N150m was paid into the bank account of Sawanara at First Bank. On August 1, 2014, N300m was paid into Sawanara Limited.

“On August 8, 2014, about N160m was paid into the bank account of Fimex Gilt Limited domiciled at UBA. On the day of the election, August 9, 2014, N350m was paid into the First Bank account of Metropolitan Consortium.”

According to Nigeria Tribune, Omisore confirmed his release saying “Thanks for your support and prayers. I also thank my supporters for their steadfastness. I’m back at home in Abuja.”

The Senator previously slammed the EFCC with a N10b suit for defamation of character.
