Reuben Abati, the former spokesman to former president Goodluck Jonathan is reportedly still being detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) despite meeting his bail condition.

According to Leadership newspaper, which quoted a family source, the EFCC refused to release Abati without giving any explanations.

"We don’t know why they are still keeping our brother despite him meeting the bail condition of EFCC. Nigerians can now see that it is not about fighting corruption but going after perceived political enemies and critics of the government," the source was quoted as saying.

The anti-graft agency had granted Abati administrative bail on October 27.

As part of his bail conditions, he was required to submit his International Passport and produce a surety who is a Level 16 civil servant.
