Days following his earlier arrest and release, All Progressives Congress (APC) chief and former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has been apprehended again by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
According to reports, Fani-Kayode was arrested at a Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos, and moved to a nearby EFCC office.
The former minister, who was in court over his forgery trial, was walking out after the matter was adjourned till January 24, 2022, when he was approached by an EFCC investigator.
He was subsequently arrested and moved to custody, a week after his earlier arrest.
An EFCC investigator, Mr Shehu Shuaibu, confirmed the ex-minister-s arrest, saying he was being quizzed over false documents.
Fani-Kayode had been having a running battle with the EFCC for some time and he was once remanded for 67 days in 2016 alongside a former minister of finance, Nevada Usman.
The duo and two others were facing a 17-count of criminal conspiracy, fraud and money laundering to the tune of N4.9 billion.
