The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has re-arrested the former Minister of Aviation, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode.
Mr. Fani-Kayode was arrested on Friday by operatives of the anti-graft agency, as he left the Federal High Court premises in Lagos.
His arrest is connected to the latest 17-count charge of money laundering to the tune of N4.9 billion filed by the EFCC in Abuja against him.
The Federal High Court in Lagos on Wednesday fixed a new date for the trial of Mr. Fani-Kayode and Nenadi Usman, who were accused of money laundering by the EFCC.
More to come.
