•To continue interrogation
ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has secured a court order to detain the embattled former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, who was being grilled on Tuesday over allegations of fraud and money laundering.
This is coming barely 24 hours after the former Minister was granted administrative bail, for which he was yet to meet the conditions.
The remand, according to EFCC sources, was to allow the commission carry on with its interrogation and widen investigation while Fani-Kayode is in their custody.
“EFCC secures remand warrant to keep Fani-Kayode while investigation continues,” the source said.
The former Publicity Director of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation, was reportedly granted bail on Monday on the conditions that he provide “two sureties at the directorate level of the Federal Civil Service, a house in Maitaima, Abuja, and their travelling documents/international Passports”.
This was after he had honoured the EFCC invitation for questioning over his alleged role in the money laundering and fraud case.
