Femi Fani-Kayode remanded in EFCC custody; ...quizzed on multiple fraud cases

Femi Fani-Kayode remanded in EFCC custody
Former Minister of Aviation and Campaign Director of the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign, Femi Fani-Kayode, has been remanded in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Mr. Fani-Kayode present himself at the agency’s headquarters in Abuja today after uniformed agents stormed his home Abuja at the weekend.


The former Minister’s home was raided last Friday by EFCC agents on account of N840 million he allegedly received from then President Goodluck Jonathan a few days before the 2015 presidential election.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Monday, questioned the Spokesman for the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation for hours, asking him to return the N840 million he received for the prosecution of the Presidential election, last year.

Although, the former minister had insisted that he got the money to do specific assignments given to him by the former president, EFCC however, asked him to produce the cash or nothing else.
