The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has given insights on the second arrest of Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister of Aviation and party chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). FFK was arrested when he attended a court session at the Ikoyi Federal High Court, Lagos on Friday.
According to an EFCC source that reportedly spoke to Vanguard Newspapers on Saturday,
“We arrested Fani-Kayode because we need him to explain to our operatives why he took the money and what he used it for. It is clear from the records before us that he received the money directly from the NSA.
“From the record before us, the suspect signed and collected the sum of N26 million for undisclosed purpose and we want him to explain to us why he took the cash in the first place.
“We are going to move him to Abuja to answer fresh questions arising from the new evidence that he personally collected various sums of money from the ONSA.
“There is a fresh case of various sums of money traced to the suspect, which has nothing whatsoever to do with the N4.9 billion case we instituted against him and others in Lagos.”
