In a report by Punch Newspaper, Mrs Fani-Kayode was detained on Monday afternoon, October 17, 2016 at about 3pm when she had gone to an Access Bank branch for a financial transaction.

The report further alleged that the ex-Minsiter's wife was in Ekiti, on the invitation of the state's governor, Peter Ayodele Fayose.

Mrs. Fani-Kayode was reportedly delayed by the Access Bank officials, who acted on the instructions of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

The ex-Miss United Nations was also reported to have been detained alongside her eight-month-old baby, who was with her during her arrest.

There are no words yet from her husband, Gov Fayose and the EFCC.
