The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has seized the international passport of Femi Fani-Kayode.

The former minister of aviation was invited to the office of the anti-graft agency, to answer questions on varying sums he got from the Goodluck Jonathan campaign organisation.

The EFCC also got a court order to keep Fani-Kayode in their custody, as they investigated his case.

FFK’s spokesman, Mr. Jude Ndukwe said “The EFCC gave him two bail conditions. The first condition was that he would hand over his passport while the second condition was for him to provide two sureties. The two sureties must be at least directors in the civil service and must have properties in AMAC (Abuja Municipal Area Council).

“Five days after meeting the conditions, the EFCC has refused to release him.”

The EFCC also blocked the bank account of the ex-minister, over an alleged involvement in the $2.1bn arms deal fraud.
