Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has debunked claims that he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
It was reported yesterday that he was arrested by EFCC for alleged forgery.
EFCC’s spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed the development to PM News.
He said Fani-Kayode was arrested for forgery and manipulation of documents.
Uwujaren said: “Yes it’s true. It has to do with forgery.”
He, however, didn’t give further details on the matter.
However, Fani-Kayode said he was not arrested and that he only responded to an invitation by the EFCC to appear.
He said he was granted bail on self-recognition by the EFCC, saying they were very polite and professional
He said: “Just arrived at the George Hotel for dinner. I was never arrested by the EFCC. I was invited & I flew down to Lagos to see them.
“I arrived in their office at 2.00pm & left at 8.30pm. I was granted bail on self recognition. They were very polite & professional. Thanks be to God.”
