A former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has dismissed reports that he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
It was widely reported on Tuesday evening that Fani-Kayode was under investigation for alleged forgery and manipulation of documents.
The ex-minister, who just recently rejoined the All Progressives Congress, was said to have been brought to the Lagos Zonal Office of the anti-graft agency on Tuesday.
However, he took to his verified Instagram handle on Wednesday morning to dismiss the report.
According to Fani-Kayode, he was only invited by the commission and granted bail on self recognition.
He said, “Just arrived at the George Hotel for dinner. I was never arrested by the EFCC. I was invited & I flew down to Lagos to see them. I arrived in their office at 2.00pm & left at 8.30pm. I was granted bail on self recognition. They were very polite & professional. Thanks be to God.”
