We are Detaining Fani-Kayode With a Valid Remand Warrant – EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Friday said it was detaining Femi Fani-Kayode with a valid remand warrant. The Commission was reacting to reports indicating that the former Minister of Aviation was still being detained despite meeting administrative bail conditions by the EFCC.

In a telephone chat with SIGNAL on Friday, spokesperson to the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren denied Fani-Kayode had met any bail conditions. “Which administrative bail conditions did he meet? What I can tell you is that we are holding the man with a valid remand warrant and what that means is that work is still ongoing on his case”, Uwujaren told our reporter.

A statement on Friday by Fani-Kayode’s special assistant on media, Jude Ndukwe, disclosed that the EFCC has moved Fani-Kayode, to Lagos for further investigation despite meeting his bail conditions.

“We do not know why he was moved, we just want to believe it is one of the antics of the EFCC to just harass him and keep him away from as many of his relatives and associates as possible.

“I don’t even think that there was any need for the transfer, if there was something they wanted to get regarding their investigation, they would have as well done in Abuja,” he said.

“So we see no reason why he should be moved to Lagos, except for their own ulterior motive. After having spent nearly two weeks in detention at the EFCC facility here in Abuja what are they planning to get from him in Lagos.”
