'I'm Fayose’s Lawyer', Fani-Kayode Tells EFCC
A mild drama ensued outside the former head office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission when operatives of the EFCC attempted to prevent a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, from accompanying former Governor Ayodele Fayose.
Fani-Kayode, who obtained an LL.B from the School of Oriental and African Studies and a Masters degree from Cambridge University, noted that he was a lawyer and had practised in Nigeria.
After challenging the security officials with his credentials, he was allowed in.
While going in, Fani-Kayode joked with the EFCC operatives that he ought to be allowed unto the premises at any time having spent 90 non-consecutive days in the custody of the commission in 2016.
“I am a regular customer here. You should know me by now,” he joked.
Mike Ozekhome (SAN), who has been representing Fayose in court since his recent case with the EFCC began, also took three lawyers from his chambers into the EFCC before leaving.
Fayose arrived the Abuja office of the Economic and Financial crime commission, in company of Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike.
Some leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, including Deji Adeyanju, also accompanied the outspoken former governor to the anti-corruption agency’s office.
