A former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode was yesterday arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The arrest, it was learned, was over alleged discrepancies in his medical records, which the anti-graft agency claimed were doctored.

Fani-Kayode is standing trial with two others on a 17-count of criminal conspiracy, fraud and money laundering to the tune of N4.9 billion.

A source said: “Our operatives arrested him over issues relating to his medical records and traveling documents. The former minister is expected to clarify some grey observations in his documents.”

The anti-graft agency’s Head of Media and Publicity, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed that the former was with the commission.
