A former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, was on Tuesday arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Lagos.

According to reports, Fani-Kayode is under investigation for alleged forgery and manipulation of documents.

Africa Today News, New York gathered that the ex-minister, who rejoined the All Progressives Congress (APC) in September, was brought to the Lagos Zonal Office of the anti-graft agency on Tuesday.

The details of the allegations against him were sketchy but the EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed Fani-Kayode’s arrest by operatives.

‘I think something like that happened,’ he said as he declined to comment further.

Fani-Kayode had been having a running battle with the EFCC for some time and he was once remanded for 67 days in 2016 alongside a former minister of finance, Nenadi Usman.

The duo and two others were facing a 17-count of criminal conspiracy, fraud and money laundering to the tune of N4.9 billion.

They denied the allegations, and each of them was later granted N250 million bail.
