The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has requested that Femi Fani-Kayode, the former Minister of Aviation, appear to its Lagos office for additional investigations into alleged document fabrication.

After his ongoing alleged N4.6 billion money laundering case with former Minister of State for Finance, Nenandi Usman, before the Federal High Court was deferred due to the absence of the first defense lawyer, Chief Ferdinand Orbih, Fani-Kayode drove to the agency’s office.

Yusuf Danjuma, a former Chairman of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON), and a firm, Jointrust Dimensions Nigeria Ltd, are also accused with a 17-count conspiracy and money laundering allegation.

The defendants are accused of committing the crimes between January and March of 2015. They had all pled not guilty to the allegations and had been released on bond.

Justice Daniel Osaigor was reassigned to the case, and a re-arraignment was set for October 27. However, because the former minister wrote a letter to the court claiming he was on bed rest, Fani-Kayode was not present in court and was instead represented by the defense attorney, Mr Fred Ajudua.

Rotimi Oyedepo, the prosecutor, informed the court that all of Fani-letters Kayode’s were fraudulent, and that he had sought multiple reasons from the court. After receiving assurances from the prosecution that the agency will deliver a meaningful report, the court decided to postpone the case until January 24.
