THE Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Tuesday, May 10, said it has secured a remand warrant to detain Femi Fani-Kayode, former minister of aviation. Wilson Uwajuren, spokesman of the anti-graft agency, said the warrant will give the agency the constitutional right to detain Fani-Kayode while he is being investigated
Fani-Kayode honoured the invitation of the EFCC and arrived at the headquarters of the agency in Abuja on Monday morning in a police convoy. The EFCC claims that Fani-Kayode has a case to answer over the Peoples Democratic Party’s election funds.
Fani-Kayode said he was surprised at the turn of events after he had promised to show up with his lawyer on Monday. He was the Director of Publicity for former President Goodluck Jonathan and PDP’s Campaign Organisation before the general election of 2015. – Channels Television
