LAGOS, OCTOBER 21, 2016 – Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.The anti-graft agency arrested the spokesman of ex-president Goodluck Jonathan’s 2015 Campaign Organization at about 1.55 pm on Friday outside the premises of a Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos.

Fani-Kayode alongside former Minister of Finance, Nnadi Usman are facing a 17-count charge bordering on unlawful retention, use and payment of money to the tune of about N4.9 billion.

The former minister, who has been very critical of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, earlier in the week, raised alarm over moves by the anti-corruption agency to silence him.
