The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Friday, invited former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, to appear before it for questioning.
The EFCC, in a letter signed by Mr. Mohammed Umar Abba on behalf of the Acting Chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, demanded his presence in their Abuja office by 10.00am on Monday, May 9, 2016, to explain his role in the presidential campaign funds of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the 2015 presidential elections.
The commission explained that Fani-Kayode’s name featured prominently in the alleged scam and he was needed to clarify some issues.
The letter read in part, “The commission is investigating a case of criminal conspiracy, fraud and money laundering involving Joint Trust Dimensions Limited which you featured prominently.
“In view of the above, you are requested to kindly report for an interview on Monday.”
Confirming the invitation, Fani-Kayode’s media aide, Jude Ndukwe said: “the EFCC wrote a letter of invitation to my principal, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode this morning, asking that he reports to their Abuja office on the morning of May 9th for a discussion.
“This is the first and only letter of invitation that Chief Fani-Kayode has received from the EFCC and it puts a lie to the shameful allegation that was being peddled around that he had been served with an earlier invitation which he had shunned and that he was running and hiding from the Commission.
“The letter of invitation was delivered to his Abuja home and he has responded promptly through his lawyers by assuring the EFCC that he would make himself available on Monday morning to assist in their investigations.”
