The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) said it has secured a remand warrant to keep former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, in its custody.

According to the spokesman for the anti-graft agency, Mr Wilson Uwajuren, the warrant gives the agency the constitutional right to detain Fani-Kayode while he is being investigated.

The former minister had on Monday, May 10, arrived at the agency's headquarters in police convoy in honour of an invitation from the EFCC.

The Commission claims that Fani-Kayode has a case to answer over the Peoples Democratic Party’s election funds.
