Since his arrest over an alleged fraudulent oil deal with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Mr Ubah has been in SSS detention custody in Abuja.

The judgment, in a 100-page, the trial judge, Justice Mohammed, on Thursday ordered the SSS to release Mr Ubah, if it fails to file a charge against the oil magnate.
