There are strong indications that the Spokesman for the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, may spend more nights in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
This is coming on the heels of the obtainment of a remand warrant from a court by the anti-corruption agency on Tuesday in Abuja to further keep Fani-Kayode in custody to conclude investigations on several fraud cases concerning him before he is charged to court.
It was learnt that the remand warrant which the EFCC secured today will enable the anti-graft agency to keep the former minister beyond the stipulated time allowed by law.
The remand order is for the next two weeks and can be renewable after 14 days depending on the outcome of investigations.
Fani-Kayode, who was the former Minister of Aviation, is accused of receiving a sum of N840 million out of the N4 billion slush funds in the heat of the 2015 presidential election.
More findings say the former minister still has a case to attend to in the Lagos office of the EFCC.
During yesterday’s wielding of the interrogative hammer on Fani-Kayode, the ex minister learned that the EFCC actually has three cases of financial crime against him.
“He will be in our custody for a few more days because we have multiple fraud charges against him,” an EFCC source said.
On whether Mr. Fani-Kayode’s was as confident in the interrogation room as he has been in public, the EFCC source said:
“He now knows that he is in big trouble and that investigators have gathered a lot of evidence against him.”
As a result of the developing case, Mr. Fani-Kayode will be transferred to Lagos to face investigators there as soon as possible.
