The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday quizzed a former President of the Senate, Chief David Mark in connection with some financial issues.
However, he was released on bail by the anti-graft agency after some hours.
A top source in the commission said: “We invited the ex-Senate President for interaction on some financial issues and he came to clarify certain aspects relating to him.
“He spent a few hours with us, made a statement and he was granted an administrative bail.
Asked of the status of Mark, the source added: “It is too early to release the details but we did not detain him.
“As soon as we get to a convenient bend, we will tell Nigerians why we quizzed Mark.
“He was implicated in some transactions and we decided to hear from him. This does not mean that he is guilty of any infractions at this stage.
” I think it is obvious that our detectives will still interrogate him again on the next few days or weeks.”
