Yoruba actress Toyin Adegbola, popularly known as Toyin Tomato, has reacted to the release of the suspended accountant-general of the federation Ahmed Idris from the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Spokesman of the anti-graft agency Wilson Uwujaren told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday that Idris was released after meeting his bail conditions.

“I actually do not have idea of what the bail conditions are but all I can tell you is that he has been released after meeting his bail conditions,” he said.

Reacting on Instagram on Thursday, Toyin lamented the state of affairs of the country.

She wrote: “Hmmm, My country my country Naija.”

Idris was arrested on May 16 over alleged diversion and laundering of N80 billion.

The EFCC said verified intelligence reports showed that Idris raked off the funds through bogus consultancies and other illegal activities using proxies, family members and close associates.

The commission said the funds were laundered through real estate investments in Kano and Abuja.

It said Idris was arrested after he failed to honour invitations by the commission to respond to issues connected to the alleged fraudulent acts.

Investigation into the alleged fraud also led to the arrest of the former governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, and the managing director of Finex Professional, Anthony Yaro, last week.
