Presidency calls on EFCC, ICPC to investigate Fani-Kayode



The insult directed at a journalist by former Aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode seems to have opened a can of worms against him.

A presidential media aide, Lauretta Onochie has called for an immediate probe into the ex-minister’s dealing while in office.

She made the call on Saturday, August 29, by urging the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) to look into an allegation levelled against him by Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.

Amaechi who claimed that FFK, as he is popularly called, made away with N2 billion made for a runway construction in Port Harcourt. Speaking during an interview with Channels TV, the Transport minister said the said fund was handed to FFK by the Peter Odili-led government.

Onochie shared a clip of the interview and wrote; “I think the @officialEFCC and @ICPC_PE should look into these GRAVE ALLEGATIONS How did one who is being prosecuted for money laundering have the privilege of a @PoliceNG Body guard? On what grounds was @RealFFK allocated the services of Nigerian Police Officers as body guards?”
