Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation, said there is nothing wrong even if he had been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Fani-Kayode stated this on Wednesday morning while reacting to his arrest by the EFCC.

The EFCC had confirmed to PM News that the former minister was arrested for forgery.

However, Fani-Kayode denied the arrest on Tuesday night and also made another comment via his Facebook page on Wednesday morning.

The ex-minister, in the new post, claimed he had a “friendly chat” with EFCC.

On the other hand, he noted that he could have been arrested because joining APC doesn’t give him immunity.

“I pity those that said I was arrested. They are filled with hate and live on fake news,” Fani-Kayode noted.

“Since when did an invitation and a friendly chat become an arrest? And even if I had been arrested, SO WHAT? I am not above the law and neither does joining APC give me immunity. My God is MIGHTY!.”

However, Fani-Kayode failed to talk about why he was in the EFCC office but confirmed in a previous post that he was “granted bail” after a “friendly chat.”

Below are some of the reactions from Nigerians on social media.

Chyke Leo: “It was not just a friendly chat, it was a brotherly and bridge-building visit. Mix more concrete and keep. You go build bridge tire. Your grammar will land you into trouble one day. Since I was born I’ve never seen a friend who releases his friend on bail.”

Engr Nathaniel: “You had a friendly chat with EFCC for 6hr?, if there was no arrest, why were u bailed on self-recognition?, Or u think Nigeria’s are daft.”

Michael Anderson:”Oga Kayode wasn’t arrested he was only granted bail if you know you know.”
