EFCC releases Omisore from detention

FORMER deputy governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore, was on Friday evening released from detention by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Omisore was arrested on July 3, 2016 and detained by the EFCC over allegations of illegally receiving about N1.3 billion from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA), when Colonel Sambo Dasuki (retd) held sway there.

He was subsequently charged to court and granted bail.

Confirming his release to Saturday Tribune last night, Omisore, in a text message, said, “Thanks for your support and prayers. I also thank my supporters for their steadfastness. I’m back at home in Abuja.”
