The Federal High Court in Abuja has rejected an application by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for the arrest of a former Minister of Aviation, Chief FEMI FANI-KAYODE.
EFCC’s prosecuting counsel, MOHAMMED ABUBAKAR, had urged the court to issue an arrest warrant against the former minister following his absence from today’s anti-graft proceedings.
FANI-KAYODE is on trial for alleged diversion of 26million naira he received from the then National Security Adviser, SAMBO DASUKI, in 2014. The application was opposed by Fani-Kayode’s lawyer, Mr WALE BALOGUN.
