An aide to Governor Dapo Abiodun of the Ogun State Government, Abidemi Rufai, is set for release from detention after getting a surety.
Mr. Abidemi is currently facing allegations of a $350,000 Coronavirus unemployment fraud in the United States of America. He was initially denied bail on Wednesday because his brother, Alaba Rufai could not meet up with the $300,000 surety bond required for his bail.
However, on Friday, Mr. Abidemi Rufai got a surety as Ramon Reyes, a Federal Magistrate Judge ruled that a family friend and a New York state resident could provide the bond.

However, Mr. Abidemi Rufai would be limited to Western Washington and New York City in his travels under electronic surveillance.
Nekpen Soyemi, a registered nurse with a Nigerian family informed the court that she would be guaranteeing the $300,000 bond and accommodating Mr. Abidemi Rufai in herself and her husband’s home.
