Fani-Kayode’s domestic staff arrested as EFCC storms residence again



Fani-Kayode calls Adesina a liar, says Buhari’s return will be temporary as usual
Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, again, stormed the residence of a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, on Thursday and arrested a domestic staff.
According to reports, the operatives arrived the 5, Zuma Close, Aso Drive, Abuja residence of the detained former minister and searched the premises.
They however could not gain entrance into the main building because it had been locked.
Fani-Kayode’s media aide, Mr. Jude Ndukwe, alleged that the operatives stormed the compound without a search warrant.
Ndukwe said: “Operatives of the EFCC invaded the home again. They did not even have a search warrant but harassed everyone in the compound.
“They could not gain access to the main building so they decided to search the quarters where the domestic servants reside. They arrested the laundry man and took him to their office but later released him.
“Chief Fani-Kayode is already in their custody. I wonder why they are still behaving this way even though he has been cooperating with them. This executive rascality must stop.”
The EFCC is holding Fani-Kayode over allegation that he received N840m in February 2015 when he was the spokesman for the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation.
