EFCC secures warrant to keep Fani-Kayode in custody while investigation continues

Femi Fani-Kayode in EFCC custody
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday said it has secured a remand warrant to keep former Minister of Aviation, Mr Femi Fani-Kayode.

The Spokesman of the anti-graft agency, Mr Wilson Uwajuren, said the warrant will give the agency the constitutional right to detain Mr Fani-Kayode while he is being investigated.

Mr 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 Mr Fani-Kayode has a case to answer over the Peoples Democratic Party’s election funds.

Mr 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.
