But shortly after, the former minister raised alarm in another statement over the presence of EFCC operatives at his home.

“Today the EFCC invited me to come their office on Monday. I have their letter. I agreed to be there. Now they have surrounded my house,” Fani-Kayode wrote.

“The letter of invitation was served this morning and it was dated 6th May. They said I should report on the 9th.

“Can someone please tell me why they are at my gate? They can’t even wait because they want to detain me so badly and keep me away for the weekend.

“I never refused their invitation. Why all this? I leave them to God,” he said.

According to Premium Times, the spokesman of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed the development.

It was reported that when Uwujaren was asked via the telephone why Fani-Kayode's home is surrounded ahead of Monday that the anti-graft asked him to appear before it, the EFCC spokesman was said to have disconnected the call.

He ignored further calls and SMS, report said.
