Former Aviation Minisiter and an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Femi Fani-Kayode, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
He was arrested at a Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos, and moved to a nearby EFCC office.
The former minister, who was in court over his forgery trial, was walking out after the matter was adjourned till January 24, 2021, when he was approached by an EFCC investigator.
He was subsequently arrested and moved into custody. This arrest is coming a week after he was earlier quizzed, a development the former minister said was a friendly chat as he denied he was arrested. He also said that his defection to the APC does not make him to be above the law.
An EFCC investigator, Mr Shehu Shuaibu, confirmed the ex-minister-s arrest, saying he was being quizzed over false documents.
