Fani-Kayode’s arrest: EFCC only invited me, says Ex-minister

Femi Fani-Kayode,  former Minister of Aviation, has denied media reports claiming he was arrested by EFCC operatives earlier today.

Posting the photos above on his Instagram page, Fani-Kayode wrote: ”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 2.00pm & left at 8.30pm. I was granted bail on self recognition. They were very polite & professional. Thanks be to God.”

According to reports, the former minister was invited to answer questions relating to the alleged forgery of a medical report which he allegedly procured to evade his trial before a Federal High Court in Lagos. Fani-Kayode arrived at the Lagos Office of the commission in the company of his lawyer at about 1pm.

The former Minister was being questioned by EFCC detectives. Fani-Kayode is standing trial on an alleged N4.6 billion fraud before Justice Daniel Osiagor of the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos.
