Femi Fani Kayode

Nigeria’s anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has reportedly arrested former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode for alleged forgery and manipulation of documents.

 

Trixx NG learnt that the ex-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.

 

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.
