Femi Fani-Kayode allegedly slumps in EFCC custody | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, slumped in the custody of the Economic
and Financial Crimes Commission.

The Special Assistant to Fani-Kayode on Media, Jude Ndukwe, raised the alarm in a statement On Monday night.

Ndukwe said FaniKayode slumped in the custody of the EFCC on Saturday.

Operatives of the EFCC had last Friday re-arrested Fani-Kayode outside the premises of the Federal High Court on Oyinkan Abayomi Drive, Ikoyi, Lagos.

Fani-Kayode was picked up after attending his trial over an alleged fraud of N4.9bn before Justice Muslim Hassan.

He was arrested as soon as he stepped out of the courtroom after the judge had adjourned further proceedings in his trial till November 14 and 15, 2016.

Ndukwe said in the statement that his boss had been on medication.

He said, “Although Chief Femi Fani-Kayode had yet to complete the recovery therapy he was undergoing after spending the initial 67 gruelling days in the EFCC custody wherein he was also physically attacked by one of the commission’s agents, in deference to the law and the Commission, he painfully but willingly cut short his therapy and medical checks to attend court proceedings.

“One would have thought that these were enough to convince EFCC that Fani-Kayode was very willing to face his persecutors in court. But rather than be humane in their conduct,
the EFCC hounded him for the umpteenth time on that fateful Friday and have since kept him in custody.

“It is, therefore, little wonder that based on the history of his medical condition which the commission is very much aware of, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode slumped while in detention on Saturday, October 22, 2016.”

  1. Clearly the present regime is not fighting corruption but using the government agencies as it's tool of oppression against perceived enemies. Fanikayode' case typifies this. They are charging him piece meal just to silence him. But it will never work instead it will enrage him the more!

    They know the tricks but I really don't know where we're going when we can't defend ourselves and let go the wrong doings.
