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