Even After Putting Him in Custody, The EFCC Did This Again to Femi Fani-Kayode
The former aviation minister who is already in trouble with the EFCC had his Abuja home raided again by operatives from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
Femi Fani-Kayode had on Monday accepted an invitation by the EFCC to come into their offices and answer questions as regards the last election fund disbursement scandal. He went in but has been detained since.
His Media aide, Jude Ndukwe, in a statement complained about the situation and claimed that it was the fourth time this week the commission had done something of that kind.
He said “Earlier today, 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 in just one 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!” Ndukwe said.
