Mr Orji was granted an administrative bail after facing hours of interrogation at EFCC headquarters in Abuja at about 9pm on Thursday, sources familiar with the case told our reporter.

He was, however, asked to return to the EFCC office for further interrogation on Friday.

The ex-governor, who had for long been on the commission’s watchlist, was intercepted at the Nnamdi International Airport, Abuja at about 10 am, and driven to the headquarters of the EFCC in Abuja.

He was quizzed alongside his son, Chinedu, the current speaker of the Abia State House of Assembly, who turned himself in this afternoon upon learning of the arrest of his father.

It could not be immediately ascertain if Chinedu was granted administrative bail like his father on Thursday.

Mr Orji, a current senator, and his sons, Chinedu and Ogbonna, have for months been under EFCC investigation for alleged misappropriation of public funds and money laundering.
