Fani-Kayode returns to DSS on Wednesday over coup tweets


A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Femi Fani-Kayode will on Wednesday return to the Department of State Services, DSS, over his coup tweet.

The former Minister of Aviation disclosed he was on Monday questioned by the operatives for about five hours.

Fani-Kayode had alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar met with some military officers.

The Director of Special Projects and New Media in the APC Presidential Campaign Council, PCC, suggested they might be planning a coup ahead of the general elections.

Speaking with reporters at the APC national secretariat in Abuja, Fani-Kayode confirmed the grilling is continuing.

The former presidential aide has been asked to report to the security service once a week till the conclusion of investigation.

Fani-Kayode said the investigators were inquisitive, polite and professional in their approach, adding that he wasn’t oppressed.

FFK admitted he regrets some of the things in the Twitter post that made the PDP and the former Vice President demand his probe.

“I spent about five hours. I was subjected to thorough grilling and asked to come back on Wednesday. If I were to do it a second time, I won’t tweet this same way,” he added.
