Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode (FFK), has denied a report that he was arrested on Monday by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). over alleged fraud and forgery, saying it was fake news.
Fani-Kayode wrote on his Instagram page that he was only invited and he flew down to Lagos, left the EFCC office at 8:30pm and he was bailed on self-recognition.
He said he only went there for questioning and if he was arrested, he is not above the law.
He added that joining the All Progressive Congress (APC) party won’t give him immunity.
He wrote: “I just arrived for dinner. I was never arrested by the EFCC. I was invited and I flew down to Lagos to see them. I arrived at their office at 2:00pm and left at 8:30pm. I was granted bail in self recognition. They were very polite and professional. Thanks to God.
“I pity those that said I was arrested. They are filled with hate and live on fake news. Since when did an invitation and a friendly chat become an arrest? And even if I had been arrested, SO WHAT? I am not above the law and neither does APC give me immunity. My God is mighty.”
