Former Aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to viral reports claiming he was arrested by EFCC operatives on Tuesday, November 23.
It was alleged that he was nabbed over alleged manipulation and forgery of documents and was whisked to the Lagos Zonal Office of the anti-graft agency.
FFK has now denied the report in a post he shared on his Instagram page. According to him, he was never arrested but invited by the EFCC.
However, he didn’t disclose what he was invited for.
Sharing photos of herself entering a hotel lobel, FFK 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.”
In a follow-up post, the politician slammed those peddling the rumour that he was arrested.
“I pity those that said I was arrested. They are filled with hate & live on fake news. Since when did an invitation & a friendly chat become an arrest? And even if I had been arrested, SO WHAT? I am not above the law & neither does joining APC give me immunity. My God is MIGHTY!”
