Nigeria’s former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode, has disputed media allegations that he was arrested by EFCC officers early today.
Taking to his Instagram page to share a post, he claimed that he was never arrested by the anti-graft agency. He disclosed that he arrived at the George Hotel for dinner but was rather invited by the EFCC.
He added that he visited their office at around 2pm and spent about 6 hours at the place. Speaking about being arrested by the EFCC, he said that he was rather granted bail on self-recognition.

”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.”
He continued in another post, he berated those claiming and spreading the news that he has been arrested. According to him, such people are filled with so much hate and expect nothing good. They feed on only fake news.
He added that he is not above the law because he has defected to the APC so it wouldn’t be surprising if he had been 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!”
