Former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Alhaji Bala Mohammed, was on Wednesday taken to the clinic of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC),where medical personnel attended him to.
This is coming at a time when the former minister has met his bail conditions, but still being held in EFCC custody.
Daily Sun gathered that owing to the fact that Mohammed’s health condition deteriorated,he was allowed to see doctors at the EFCC facility. The nature of the illness was not disclosed.
Sources, however,said, the former minister returned from medical treatment abroad before going to honour EFCC invitation.
Before travelling abroad, it was gathered, Mohammed had undergone surgery at the National Hospital, Abuja.
Daily Sun gathered that Mohammed has fulfilled his bail condition. He was asked to produce two directors in the civil service, one of who must own a landed property in the FCT to stand surety for him. This has been fulfilled.
In the meantime,the EFCC has taken custody of the international passport of Mohammed. There is no indication when the former minister will be released or why he is still being held despite fulfilling bail conditions.
In a related development, Mohammed, Dr. Reuben Abati, ex-senior Special Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on Media, former Nigerian ambassador to Ghana, Musliu Obanikoro and former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, continued to
