Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode’s house in Abuja (Federal Capital Territory) is currently under siege by agents of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
This is after the EFCC had earlier today, Friday, May 06, 2016, invited Fani-Kayode to report at the agency’s Abuja office on Monday, May 9, for questioning. The invitation letter was signed by Mohammed Umar Abba on behalf of the Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, and was delivered to the former Minister in his Abuja home.
Fani-Kayode has, however, cried out that inspite of acknowledging the invitation through his lawyers, the anti-graft agency intends to immediately detain him.
He wrote on his 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 6th May. They said I should report on the 9th. 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.”
Nigerians have reacted with indifference to his predicament however, judging by the comments below…
Dear Femi Fani-Kayode @RealFFK,
You’re cordially invited.

I wonder why Femi Fani-Kayode was bragging all over the place that he is not afraid of EFCC. Now he is asking God to come to his aid 🙂

EFCC Invites Fani-Kayode For Questioning Monday. So why did the EFCC surround his gate? To starve his re-supply route or what?

Agents of an oppressive govt called the EFCC have surrounded Femi Fani Kayode’s house, 48 hours before the official invitation. Shameful!

EFCC thanked Femi Fani-Kayode for his “usual cooperation.”
What a subtle threat.
