EFCC invites Fani-Kayode over campaign funds
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has invited a former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, for receiving N840m from the Director of Finance, Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation, Senator Nenadi Usman.
Fani-Kayode, who was the Director of Publicity for Jonathan's campaign organisation, was said to have received the money in January, 2015.
The money was said to have emanated from the Central Bank of Nigeria.
In a letter signed by Mr. Mohammed Umar Abba on behalf of the Acting Chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, the commission explained that Fani-Kayode's name featured prominently in the alleged scam and he was needed to clarify some issues.
The letter read in part, 'The commission is investigating a case of criminal conspiracy, fraud and money laundering involving Joint Trust Dimensions Limited which you featured prominently. In view of the above, you are requested to kindly report for an interview on Monday.'
