The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has withdrawn its operatives from the residence of a former Aviation Minister in Nigeria, Mr Femi Fani-Kayode.
Operatives of the EFCC were withdrawn after a siege that lasted almost six hours on Friday.
Officers of the EFCC had visited his Maitama home at about 10:00am local time, inviting him for questioning on Monday, May 9, only to return at midday with armed men, seeking his arrest.
The EFCC said it was carrying out its functions, claiming that Mr Fani-Kayode had a case to answer over the Peoples Democratic Party’s election funds.
Mr Fani-Kayode said he was surprised at the turn of events after he had promised to show up with his lawyer on Monday.
he was the Director of Publicity for former President Goodluck Jonathan and PDP’s campaign Organisation before the general election of 2015.
