An EFCC official confirmed the development.

You would recall that a Federal High Court in Abuja had, on Monday, granted bail to the former senator in the sum of N10m.

The judge, Justice Inyang Ekwo, granted his bail application after Sani was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on two counts of fraud involving alleged extortion of $25,000 from a businessman in November 2019.
