Fani-Kayode to Spend Time with EFCC

Chief Femi Fani-Kayode may have to spend the next couple of days in custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

It waseas gathered the anti graft body has secured a remand warrant to further detain the Spokesman for the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation, who was invited to appear before EFCC on Monday over the receipt of public funds to the tune of N840 million out of the N4bn payout in the heat of the presidential election last year.

The remand warrant which was secured Tuesday will enable the anti-graft agency to keep the former Minister until full investigations are concluded.

The move, according to EFCC, is to enable the operatives to conduct proper investigation into how he got the money, what it was used for and who the beneficiaries are.

Fani-Kayode has been a strong critic of this administration. He had on several occasions said he was not afraid to face the EFCC over the said money, saying the money was given to him to carry out his duty as media person of Jonathan Campaign Organisation.

He noted he did not know where the money came from and was non of his business to ask then where the money was sourced.
