Justice Othman Musa granted the request contained in an ex parte application filed and moved by the EFCC’s lawyer, Fatima Mustapha, on Friday.

Mustapha told the court that the plan to detain Adoke will allow the EFCC complete its investigations of allegations on the former AGF.

Adoke has been accused of a part in the $1.1 billion Malabu Oil scam. He returned to Nigeria via Abuja on Thursday after a four-year self exile. He was arrested immediately by the EFCC at the airport.
