After making false comments accusing the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of invading the residence of embattled CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen, Femi Fani-Kayode has recanted the claims but made fresh allegations.
In an early morning Wednesday post on his Facebook wall, the former minister of Aviation apologised that although some men surrounded Onnoghen’s home they were not from the EFCC.
He requested the Federal government to reveal the security operatives that were at the residence of the CJN.
He said, “Yesterday I was informed by usually reliable sources that EFCC were positioned outside CJN’s home. I have since discovered that the men were not from EFCC and I removed the posting. The error is regretted.
“Meanwhile can the Federal Government tell us which agency sent those men and why they beat a retreat? Again is it true that a television journalist was arrested at the scene and his camera and footage confiscated? If so, why?
“Finally is it true that the Attorney General has ordered the NFIU to freeze Onnoghen’s bank accounts. Questions, questions, questions! The tyranny continues unabated.”
Following his late Tuesday post, Fani-Kayode was taken up by the anti graft agency which threatened to take legal action against him.
