Fani-Kayode Spends First Night In Underground Cell As EFCC Continues Grilling

share on:

Strong indications have emerged that the former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, spent the first night in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

This is coming in contradiction to earlier reports that Mr Fani-Kayode was allowed to go home with an administrative bail as authorities of the commission said they are quizzing Mr. Fani-Kayode over a sum of N840 million allegedly paid into his account on the eve of the 2015 general elections, Premium Times reports.

Although, Fani-Kayode, the Spokesman for the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation, had insisted that the money was given to him after the successful conclusion of specific assignments directed at him by his principal, however, the premier anti-graft commission asked him to produce the cash or nothing else.

“He is still being questioned and he will be passed to another set of investigators when he finishes answering here.”

“There is more than one case against him,” the source concluded.

Corroborating with the source on his Twitter account, the New Media Director of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Adeyanju Deji, said, in series of tweets:
