The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied reports that former aviation minister, Femi Fani- Kayode slumped in its office.

Fani-Kayode's media aide, Jude Ndukwe had claimed that his boss slumped while in detention on Saturday, October 22.

EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren has however denied the claim and dismissed it as “dubious and attention-seeking.”

“There is no truth whatsoever in the dubious and attention-seeking alarm that Fani-Kayode slumped and was revived by EFCC medical personnel,” Uwujaren told Vanguard.

“There was nothing like that as the said Fani-Kayode and Obanikoro sat together and enjoyed their jokes at the first round of checks of inmates in EFCC custody on Monday night,” he added.

Ndukwe had earlier claimed that the EFCC was planning to kill Fani-Kayode.

The former minister was re-arrested by EFCC agents on Friday, October 21, outside the Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos.
