Fayose Visits Fani-Kayode in EFCC Custody


The Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, yesterday joined the growing list of dignitaries paying solidarity visits on the detained former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode.

The governor visited Fani-Kayode in Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and spent quite some time encouraging him.

He arrived the commission about 2:15p.m. and was received by a team of operatives led by one Mr. Madaki.

A statement by Fani-Kayode’s aide, Jude Ndukwe, said the governor later departed the commission at 4:30p.m.

Fayose’s visit is the latest among those of top dignitaries who have paid solidarity visits on the former Director of Media and Publicity of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Organisation.

Recall that the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, senators, leaders of the PDP and other political, religious and socio-cultural organisations are among those who have paid the former minister a visit in custody.
Chief Femi Fani-Kayode is expected to be arraigned on November 10, 2016, at a Federal High Court in Abuja.
