« on: October 21, 2016, 04:12:23 PM »


A former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has been re-arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) today, October 21.

Fani-Kayode was arrested outside the Federal High Court Ikoyi, Lagos state.Fani-Kayode being led to a waiting bus by EFCC officials outside the court premises on Friday, October 21.Fani-Kayode’s arrest comes shortly after he alleged that the commission was planning to re-arrest and detain him indefinitely.

He said in statement on Thursday, October 21 that the commission was planning to re-arrest him, even though he had been granted bail by the Federal High Court in Lagos.

“I have been reliably informed by my sources within the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) that they are planning to re-arrest and detain me for as long as possible once again even though I have been granted bail by the Federal High Court in Lagos,” he said.

He said the fresh charges were politically-motivated, noting that there is no truth in or substance to them, Premium Times reports.

According to him, the case had been assigned to a judge and the date for arraignment had been set for November 10 before Justice Tsoho of the Federal High Court in Abuja.

He said: “My lawyers were in court for the original date of arraignment on the 14th of October but for some curious reason the EFCC did not show up on that day,” he said.

“The matter was therefore adjourned till 10th November and my lawyers have given an undertaking to the Judge to ensure that I am in court on that day. They have also written to the EFCC to that effect and our letter was acknowledged by them.

“Because of that the matter is now seized of the court yet the EFCC are still planning to arrest me probably at the premises of the Federal High Court in Lagos after I appear there on Friday 21st October to attend my trial on the trumped up and, again, politically-motivated charges concerning the presidential campaign funds.

“If they do not arrest me then they will arrest me and seek to detain me for as long as possible soon after that. Whichever way they will come and I am ready for them. I am not running.”

Kayode said the commission was eager to hurt and spite him by planning to also detain his wife and his eight-month-old son who have done nothing wrong.

He alleged that the presidency had ordered the commission to keep him out of circulation and off the streets.
