Fani-Kayode 1 EFCC 0 : Anti-graft Agency finally ends 8-hour siege


Despite serving him a summon on Friday morning, operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission still decided to lay an 8-hour siege on the Abuja home of the former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, and in the end, it was all for nothing.

The EFCC had earlier on Friday, May 6, invited Fani-Kayode to report at the agency’s Abuja office on Monday, May 9, for questioning.

Fani-Kayode had announced the presence of the EFCC operatives on his Facebook page.

He wrote: “Today the EFCC invited me to to come their office on monday. I have their letter. I agreed to be there. Now they have surrounded my house.”

“The letter of invitation was served this morning and it was dated 6th May. They said I should report on the 9th. They can’t even wait because they want to detain me so badly and keep me away for the weekend. I never refused their invitation. Why all this? I leave them to God.”

Subsequently, he announced that: “After 8 hours the massive siege on my home has been lifted, the EFCC has left my gates and I look forward to my date with them at their office on Monday.”
