Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation, has denied reports that operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC arrested him on Tuesday.
News of the former minister’s arrest by operatives of the anti-graft agency broke on Tuesday night. He was said to be quizzed for alleged manipulation and forgery.
The EFCC Spokesman Wilson Uwujaren had confirmed to newsmen that he was indeed arrested even though he did not give details.
But Fani-Kayode on his Twitter page on Tuesday night said, he was only invited by the commission and has since been granted bail.
He wrote, “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.”
