Fani-Kayode’s Words Before He Was Rearrested by the EFCC

Nigeria’s former Aviation Minister, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode was on Friday afternoon rearrested by the EFCC at a Federal High Court in Lagos.

As he stepped out of court where he and four others were on trial on a N4.9 billion money laundering charge, he was accosted by EFCC operatives.

The operatives, one dressed in white kaftan and the others in black suits, flanked his sides, and requested that he followed them to the commission but allowed him to speak to the press.

Here are his words:

“The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has re-arrested me on a matter touching on, I believe, a case in Abuja, which we have already acknowledged the fact that the matter is for November 10, and my lawyers have appeared in court.

“The court is seized of the matter and my lawyers have undertaken to produce me in court. They have written a letter which has been acknowledged by the EFCC, saying I’ll be in Abuja to answer to those charges on November 10,” Fani-Kayode said.

He was then led to a white Toyota Hiace bus which had barricaded the court’s gate and driven away.
