I Was Never Arrested By EFCC-Femi-Fani Kayode

Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation has denied being arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

On Tuesday, FFK was reportedly arrested by operatives of the anti-graft commission in Lagos on allegations of Fraud and Forgery.

However, in a statement sent on Tuesday night, the fiery politician disclosed that he was never arrested but instead honoured an invitation by the commission.

The statement read; “Just arrived at the George Hotel for dinner. I was never arrested by the EFCC. I was invited & I flew down to Lagos to see them. I arrived in their office at 2.00 pm & left at 8.30 pm.”

“I was granted bail on self-recognition. They were very polite & professional. Thanks be to God.”

The EFCC had earlier on Tuesday confirmed the arrest of Mr Fani-Kayode in Lagos over alleged forgery and fraud.

Sources familiar with the matter revealed that Mr Fani-Kayode was being investigated for forgery of his medical report to evade his ongoing trial for alleged fraud.

The EFCC is prosecuting Mr Fani-Kayode and two others on 17 counts of conspiracy, money laundering, and fraud to the tune of N4.9 billion.

The Federal High Court in Lagos had awarded a fine of N200,000 against the former minister for his absence from court with respect to the alleged N4.9 billion fraud.
