The family of the ex Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Alex Badeh, has expressed concern that the health of their bread winner might get worse in EFCC detention.

They called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), to release him based on personal recognition, so he can receive proper medical attention.

Also, Badeh’s lawyers have written Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, saying the EFCC has set difficult conditions for the bail of the ex military chief.

The lawyers also wondered if the EFCC had a hidden agenda, adding that the ex-CDS has been co-operating with the agency since his arrest.

EFCC operatives, on Tuesday, February 9, raided the home of former Chief of Defence Staff Alex Badeh after he had been interrogated for 24 hours.

Badeh was also linked to a N4.4 billion money laundering investigation being conducted with regards to the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).

His Abuja mansion was also reportedly sealed by the anti-graft agency.
