His release was confirmed by Channels Television on Tuesday.
Turaki, a former presidential aspirant of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), was reportedly arrested by operatives of the EFCC for no specific reasons, according to the PDP.
Prior to his release, PDP spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement, said Turaki’s arrest and detention is part of the grand plot by the Buhari presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to use state apparatus of power to intimidate PDP leaders and scuttle PDP’s determination to reclaim its February 23, 2019 Presidential election victory in court.

He said: “Since the people’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar and the PDP expressed our unwavering determination to reclaim our victory at the tribunal, being armed with overwhelming evidence, our leaders have been subjected to escalated harassments, constant threats, blackmails, cajoling and contrivances by the APC to drop our legal option.
“It is instructive to state that Tanimu Turaki was arrested and detained upon invitation by the EFCC to endorse a bail document for the Finance Director of Atiku Abubakar’s company, Babalele Abdullahi, who was arrested earlier by the commission over flimsy allegations.”
