The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has released Reuben Abati, former spokesman to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
Abati, who was arrested on October 24, told PUNCH that he was released at about 8pm on Friday.
The newspaper quoted him as saying work on his bail would be completed on Monday.
He was arrested for allegedly receiving N50 million from Sambo Dasuki, former national security adviser (NSA).
His release came hours after that of Musiliu Obanikoro, a former minster of state for defence.
While Abati spent 13 days in custody, Obanikoro was detained for 18 days.
