Forgery: Fani-Kayode contradicts self, denies arrest, says EFCC granted him ‘bail on self-recognition’

Controversial ex-Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has denied that he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in Lagos on Tuesday, even as he said the anti-graft agency granted him “bail on self-recognition”.

Fani-Kayode made the contradictions in a two-part tweet after his arrest by the EFCC. According to different online sources, a bail is the temporary release of an accused person awaiting trial after the arrest of such person.

Tweeting via @realFFK, he wrote, “I was never arrested by the EFCC. I was invited & I flew down to Lagos to see them. I arrived in their office at 2.00pm & left at 8.30pm. I was granted bail on self recognition. They were very polite & professional. Thanks be to God.”

“I pity those that said I was arrested. They are filled with hate & live on fake news. Since when did an invitation & a friendly chat become an arrest? And even if I had been arrested, SO WHAT? I am not above the law & neither does joining APC give me immunity. My God is MIGHTY!” he added.

Fani-Kayode was said to be under investigation for alleged forgery and manipulation of documents.

It was gathered that the ex-minister, who re-joined the All Progressives Congress in September, was brought to the Lagos Zonal Office of the anti-graft agency on Tuesday.

The details of the allegations against him were sketchy but the EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed Fani-Kayode’s arrest by operatives.

Fani-Kayode had been having a running battle with the EFCC for some time and he was once remanded for 67 days in 2016 alongside a former minister of finance, Nevada Usman.

The duo and two others were facing a 17-count of criminal conspiracy, fraud and money laundering to the tune of N4.9 billion.

They denied the allegations, and each of them was later granted N250 million bail.
