Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has come under attack for insisting that he was never arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Fani-Kayode was re-arrested by EFCC on Tuesday over alleged document falsification.
Fani-Kayode, alongside others, is standing trial over alleged N4.6 billion money laundering, alongside Nenandi Usman, a former Minister of State for Finance.
According to the report, Fani-Kayode was arrested on Tuesday after proceedings at the Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos. However, in a tweet on his verified Twitter handle, the former Minister denied the arrest, saying he was only invited by the anti-graft agency.
“Once again I was invited to the EFCC today. Once again, despite media reports, I was NOT arrested but invited. I got there at 11.00 am and I have just been released. Thanks be to God”, he tweeted.
