BLACKWASH reported earlier that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had arrested the former Minister for Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode for forgery.

Reports have it that the anti-graft agency had arrested the APC chieftain for allegedly forging hospital documents he used to hoodwink the court in stalling his money-laundering case currently in court.

It was alleged that Chief Fani Kayode had forged medical reports to a Federal High Court in Lagos,  hearing a N4.6 billion money laundering charge against him and three others. The medical reports, five at different instances, had enabled Fani-Kayode to obtain court adjournments.
However, reacting to the report, Fani -Kayode had written on his social media handles: “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 2.00 pm & left at 8.30 pm. I was granted bail on self-recognition. They were very polite & professional. Thanks be to God.”
The questioning would continue although it could not be immediately ascertained when the EFCC told him to report again.
A reliable source at the agency told the International Centre for Investigative Reporting, ICIR that the former minister could be charged with forgery if investigations convincingly nailed him.

The ICIR learnt that Fani-Kayode might well be deploying a contrived method between him and some medical personnel on the medical excuses to enable him evade trial.

The EFCC, after receiving the defendant’s latest letter, observed the trend Fani-Kayode’s letters had taken in getting adjournments and decided to take a hard look at the development.

The agency observed all the letters were supposedly issued from the Kubwa General Hospital, Abuja, except one issued from the Federal Staff Hospital, Federal Ministry of Health, Abuja.
