A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has clarified that he was arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Tuesday.

Fani-Kayode was reportedly nabbed over alleged manipulation and forgery.

EFCC Spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, had confirmed that he was indeed arrested even though he did not give details.

But Fani-Kayode on his Twitter page claimed he was only invited by the anti-graft agency and has since been granted bail.

He wrote, “Just arrived at the George Hotel for dinner. I was never arrested by the EFCC. I was invited & I flew down to Lagos to see them. I arrived in their office at 2.00pm & left at 8.30pm.

“I was granted bail on self-recognition. They were very polite & professional. Thanks be to God.”
