FFK slumps in EFCC custody - Aide

Chief Femi Fani- Kayode who was the Spokesperson to ex- President Goodkuck Jonathan’s campaign Organisation, was said to have slumped yesterday at the premises of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC where he is being held in their custody, just as the family has raised alarm over fear for his life. However in a quick rebuttal, the EFCC dismissed Ndukwe’s claims, saying there was no truth whatsoever to them.

EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren said: “There is no truth whatsoever in the dubious and attention-seeking alarm that Fani-Kayode slumped and was revived by EFCC medical personnel. There was nothing like that as the said Fani-kayode and Obanikoro sat together and enjoyed their jokes at the first round of checks of inmates in EFCC custody on Monday night.

A statement yesterday night by Fani- Kayode’s Special Adviser, Media, Jude Ndukwe read, “When Chief Femi Fani-Kayode was rearrested on Friday, 21st of October, 2016, in the premises of the Federal High Court, Ikoyi, Lagos, we raised a number of issues which included that the re-arrest was not only unnecessary but that it was also reckless.

“We made known our fears that Fani-Kayode’s life was in dire danger as long as he remained in EFCC custody or in the custody of any agency of the federal government based on discreet information available to us. This is apart from the fact that his health has been badly affected since his incarceration for a whopping 67 days based on some questionable ‘detention orders’.
