It was gathered that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is to arraign a former Minister of Aviation and spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Council for the 2015 election, Femi Fani-Kayode, on new charges of fraud on November 10.
The spokesman of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, disclosed this in Abuja on Tuesday.
Uwujaren said that the commission had already served the former minister with court processes.
He did not give further details.
Fani-Kayode was re-arrested by EFCC operatives while emerging from a Federal High Court room in Lagos on Friday.
He is standing trial in the Lagos court alongside a former Minister of Finance, Nenandi Usman, one Danjuma Yusuf and a company, Joint Trust Dimension Nigeria Limited.
The three are facing a 17-count charge of unlawful retention, unlawful use and unlawful payment of money to the tune of about N4.9 billion, a charge they denied.
Reports say that the prosecutor, Rotimi Oyedepo, had concluded the witness’ evidence for the da, and the case adjourned till November 14 and 15 for continuation of hearing.
But as the accused emerged from the courtroom, he was flanked by two EFCC operatives who led him into a waiting Toyota Hiace bus and drove him away.
He has been in the commission’s custody since then.
