Funds Probe: EFCC Raids Fani-Kayode’s Home Again

The residence of Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, was on Thursday raided by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

Jude Ndukwe, his media aide in a statement Thursday night, said “Earlier today (Thursday), the EFCC invaded the residence of Chief Femi Fani-Kayode even when he was still in their custody.

“What miffed us most was their mode of operation which was forceful, provocative and dangerous as they wielded their guns with needless threats.

“The worst is that the invasion was without a warrant as they forced their way in, and after terrifying all the staff at home including the infant, they whisked the laundry man away even though he was later released.

“This is the fourth time the EFCC operatives would be invading Chief Fani-Kayode’s residence just under a week.

“We condemn this act of executive lawlessness, harassment and intimidation.

“Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has served this country even at the highest levels and he deserves some courtesy.

“We call on the EFCC to endeavour to carry out their functions within the ambit of our laws and stop brazenly betraying the fact that Chief Fani-Kayode is under persecution. The world is watching!”

The spokesman of former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan’s Campaign Organisation, was at the EFCC on Monday to answer questions on N840 million he allegedly received before the presidential election.

On Tuesday, the EFCC secured a remand warrant to further detain him.

It said this would enable the commission conduct thorough investigation on the matter.
