EFCC Re-Arrests Femi Fani-Kayode, As Court Adjourns Fraud Trial by etokhana: 3:42pm On Nov 30, 2021
A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, was on Tuesday re-arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) within the premises of the Federal High Court in Lagos over alleged forgery.

The scenario played out after Justice Daniel Osiagor adjourned further hearing in his trial over alleged N4.6 billion fraud to January 24, 2022.

Fani-kayode was still at the corridor of the court when an EFCC investigator, Shehu Shuaibu, walked up to him alongside a lawyer in the Commission and after some discussions, the former minister entered his vehicle and followed the operative.

The operative, who confirmed the arrest to journalists, said Fani-Kayode was in EFCC’s Lagos office for questioning over alleged forgery. It would be recalled that the former minister was also recently quizzed over the allegation.

Prior to his arrest, further hearing in trial of Fani-Kayode alongside a former Minister of Finance, Mrs. Nenadi Esther Usman, a former ALGON Chairman, Danjuma Yusuf, and a firm, Jointrust Dimentions Nigeria Limited, over an alleged N4.6 billion fraud was stalled before Justice Daniel Osiagor.

The matter was adjourned owing to the absence of one of the defence lawyers, Chief Ferdinand Orbih (SAN), who wrote a letter to the court requesting for another hearing date.

Responding, EFCC’s lawyer, Rotimi Oyedepo, was not opposed to Orbih’s request. He, however, informed the court that the prosecution was glad that the court has figured out from its records that Fani Kayode had sought repeated excuses from the court. He added that the prosecution had recently discovered that all letters sent by Fani-Kayode were fake.

At this point, Justice Osiagor intervened saying it was a matter the agency ought to have thrashed out before the court acted on the letters to grant an adjournment. The judge said having granted an adjournment on the letters, the court has become ‘functus officio’.

In response, Oyedepo told the court that the EFCC was currently working on the report and will do the needful.

The prosecution of Fani-Kayode and others had commenced since 2016 before Justice Muslim Hassan. The judge later recused himself from the case following a petition by Fani-Kayode alleging that he was formerly a legal officer with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The case was subsequently transferred to Justice Rilwan Aikawa. However, midway to the defendants’ trial, Justice Aikawa was transfered out of Lagos to another jurisdisction of the court. This led to the transfer of the case to Justice Osiagor for the matter to commence afresh.

The EFCC in a 17-count charge marked FHC/L/C/251c/2016, alleged that the accused persons had on or before January 2015, unlawfully retained the total sum of N4.6 billion said to be proceeds of an unlawful act.

FFK is a goner. They will lure him and allow him to gradually spend his little cash chasing shadows. This is the right time for that Journalist guy to ask him WHO is Bankrolling him? I bet he won't be able to respond rudely to him this time by the time the EFCC milk the last sap from his generational pocket. Tufiakwa, political Philanderer.

ok

Fani crack head, the former Demi God of the delusional IPIG terrorist monkeys is now hated by the same fools just because he changed party.
If he were to still be in the PDP, the IPIG terrorist reta@ds would have started wailing and crying for his release by now.
They would have been calling him saint and abusing Buhari for messing with their Demi God.
Bunch of hypocritical IPIG terrorist fools.

FFK can't stay long in APC. Fortunately for APC, this new crime of forgery he is being arrested for occurred before he joined APC. The Judge is right that EFFC should have done appropriate forensic check on the letters before presenting it to the courts. Such fake letters had been submitted to the courts of three different Judges yet none did as much as request that EFCC confirm those letters.
This is a good lesson to EFCC too.
