Reports say that Ettu Mohammad has opened a campaign on an online fund-raising platform on Sunday, October 30.
According to reports, Abati allegedly collected N50m from the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.
The former media aide of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, was later granted bail on October 28, 2016.
Abati is still in the custody of the EFCC because he has not been able to meet the anti-graft agency’s bail condition, Premium Times reports.
Reports say Ettu Mohammed, on Sunday, October 30, 2016, opened a fund-raising campaign on Gofundme (an online fundraising platform).
According to Premium Times, Mohammed said “Reuben Abati the spokesman of ex-president Goodluck Jonathan is under lock and key for voluntarily collecting the sum of 50m Naira from Sambo Dasuki.
“We believe he must have been under the influence of Aso Rock evil spirit.”
“We are begging Nigerians to save Reuben Abati from detention.
“Two weeks ago, he said there were evil spirits in Aso Rock but he was running around for Goodluck Jonathan to return so that he could continue working on the same place infested by evil spirits," he added.
Further investigation on the fund raising platform did not reveal any account related to Reuben Abati or Ettu Mohammed.
On October 24, 2016, Reuben Abati, was arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
