Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has debunked reports claiming he will return N26million to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
In a statement released on Monday, Fani-Kayode insisted the case
against him was adjourned because a new lawyer took over and needed time
to study it.
The ex-Minister said: “Reports that are coming out that Chief Femi
Fani-Kayode has agreed to return N26m to the EFCC in an attempt to
settle his case at the Abuja Federal High Court out of court with them
“The matter was adjourned in the Abuja Federal High Court primarily
because a new lawyer in the person of Mr. Ahmed Raji (SAN) is now
handling the case and he needed time to be properly briefed on the
matter and to go through the file.
“Under no circumstances will Chief Fani-Kayode pay any money back to
the EFCC or any other government agency because he never collected any
money from any government agency in the first place. The reports are
false, embarrassing and mischievous.”
Fani-Kayode is standing trial for allegedly receiving N26m from the office of the National Security Adviser.
