Daily Trust report indicated that Okorocha was released on Thursday evening.
It was also disclosed that the former Governor was at his Maitama residence in Abuja after his freedom.
Recall that he was picked up at his private office by the operatives of the EFCC for questioning.
Okorocha, who governed Imo between 2011 and 2019, has been accused of misappropriation of state funds by the Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma.
