Agunloye meets bail conditions

Former Minister of Power and Steel, Olu Agunloye, has been released from the Kuje Correctional Centre after meeting his bail condition.

It was learnt  that Agunloye was released on Friday evening.

The spokesperson of Federal Capital Territory Command of the Nigerian Correctional Service, Adamu Duza, disclosed this to our Correspondent in a telephone interview.

Duza said, Agunloye has been released from prison after meeting his bail condition adding that he was released around 5.30pm on Friday.

A Federal High Court in Abuja had ordered the remand of Agunloye in Kuje custodial centre over a $6bn Mambilla hydropower contract.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission arraigned Agunloye before the Federal High Court in Abuja where he pleaded not guilty to the charges read against him.

The judge, however, ordered that the embattled former minister be remanded in Kuje custodial centre pending when bail would be granted.

Recall that the EFCC declared Agunloye wanted in connection with a $6bn power scheme involving the Mambilla hydropower project.
