Former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, who is being investigated in relation to the disbursement of campaign funds by the Peoples Democratic Party during the 2015 elections may be in deeper trouble than we previously thought.
On Thursday, Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission invaded his home for the second time, the Punch Newspaper is reporting.
According to the Punch, the EFCC operatives arrived the residence of the former minister, who is being detained by the commission, in the afternoon but could only search the compound as they could not gain entrance into the main building, which was locked.
According to Fani-Kayode’s spokesperson, Jude Ndukwe, they harassed everyone in the compound as they searched the domestic quarters. He said they eventually arrested Mr Fani-Kayode’s laundry man but released him hours later.
“They could not gain access into the main building so they decided to search the quarters where the domestic servants reside. They arrested the laundry man and took him to their office but later released him.
“Chief Fani-Kayode is already in their custody. I wonder why they are still behaving this way even though he has been cooperating with them. This executive rascality must stop.”
Fani-Kayode admitted to receiving N840 million as the director of publicity of the campaign organisation of former President Goodluck Jonathan but claimed he did not know that the money emanated from the Central Bank of Nigeria as the EFCC is claiming.
