Fani-Kayode Kicks As EFCC Storms Residence, To Honour Invitation Monday

Former aviation minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has protested the storming of his house by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The EFCC operatives surrounded the home Fani-Kayode allegedly for receiving N840m from the Director of Finance, Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation, Senator Nenadi Usman.
Fani-Kayode wrote on his official Facebook page, “Today the EFCC invited me to come to their office on Monday. I have their letter. I agreed to be there. Now they have surrounded my house.
“The letter of invitation was served this morning and it was dated May 6. They said I should report on the 9th. Can someone please tell me why they are at my gate? They can’t even wait because they want to detain me so badly and keep me away for the weekend.
“I never refused their invitation. Why all this? I leave them to God.”
Fani-Kayode, who was the Director of Publicity for Jonathan’s campaign organisation, was said to have received the money in January, 2015.
The money was said to have emanated from the Central Bank of Nigeria.
In a letter signed by Mr. Mohammed Umar Abba on behalf of the Acting Chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, the commission explained that Fani-Kayode’s name featured prominently in the alleged scam and he was needed to clarify some issues.
The letter read in part, “The commission is investigating a case of criminal conspiracy, fraud and money laundering involving Joint Trust Dimensions Limited which you featured prominently. In view of the above, you are requested to kindly report.”
Fani-Kayode had consistently claimed that they got money to run the PDP presidential election campaign and did the job for which money was approved.‎
