The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Friday officially invited a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, to appear at its headquarters in Abuja for questioning.
The letter advised Mr. Fani-Kayode to arrive at the agency’s headquarters on May 9, by 10:00 a.m.
Mr. Fani-Kayode had said in a statement on Wednesday that he was no hiding from the agency, in response to a media report that he was on the run.
In a statement signed by his media aide, Jude Ndukwe, Mr. Fani-Kayode said he had informed his lawyers about the development, adding that he will honour the invitation and cooperate fully with the agency in the course of its investigation.
“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,” Mr. Ndukwe said.
The EFCC’s letter, dated 6th May, 2016, was signed by Mohammed Abba on behalf the agency’s chairman, Ibrahim Magu.
“This commission is investigating a case of criminal conspiracy, fraud and money laundering involving Joint Trust Dimension Ltd. in which you featured prominently,” the letter read. “In view of the above, you’re requested to kindly report for an interview with the undersigned.”
