Fani-Kayode had been having a running battle with the EFCC for some time and he was once remanded for 67 days
A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, in Lagos.
He was said to be under investigation for alleged forgery and manipulation of documents.
Newsheadline 247 understand that the former minister, who rejoined the All Progressives Congress, APC, in September, was brought to the Lagos Zonal Office of the anti-graft agency on Tuesday.
The details of the allegations against him were sketchy but the EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed Fani-Kayode’s arrest by operatives.
“I think something like that happened,” he said and declined to comment further, the PUNCH newspaper quoted the Commission’s spokesman.
Fani-Kayode had been having a running battle with the EFCC for some time and he was once remanded for 67 days in 2016 alongside a former minister of finance, Nenadi Usman.
The duo and two others were facing a 17-count of criminal conspiracy, fraud and money laundering to the tune of N4.9 billion.
They denied the allegations, and each of them was later granted N250 million bail. (PUNCH)
