Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), and a former Minister was on Tuesday arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as he was about leaving a Court House in Lagos.

The 61-year-old former critic of President Buhari and Fulani Nation, was arrested by the anti-graft operatives at the Federal High Court in Ikoyi and later moved to a nearby EFCC office.

Chief Fani-Kayode was in court for his forgery trial and was walking out after the case was adjourned till January 24, 2021, when he was approached by an EFCC investigator.

He was subsequently arrested and moved to custody, a week after his earlier arrest.

An EFCC investigator, Mr Shehu Shuaibu, confirmed the former PDP stalwart’s arrest, saying he was being quizzed over false documents.
