Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have surrounded the Abuja residence of Femi Fani-Kayode, director of publicity of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign organisation.
Making this disclosure via his Facebook account, Fani-Kayode said he had been earlier invited by the EFCC and had replied that he will honour the invitation.
“Today the EFCC invited me to come their office on Monday. I have their letter. I agreed to be there. Now they have surrounded my house,” he wrote on Facebook.
“The letter of invitation was served this morning and it was dated May 6. They said I should report on the 9th. Can someone please tell me why they are at my gate?
“They can’t even wait because they want to detain me so badly and keep me away for the weekend. I never refused their invitation. Why all this? I leave them to God.”
In the letter inviting Fani-Kayode, the EFCC said it was “investigating a case of criminal conspiracy, fraud and money laundering involving Joint Trust Dimensions Limited” which he “featured prominently”.
“In view of the above, you are requested to kindly report for an interview with the undersigned,” the letter read in part.
The letter was signed by Mohammed Abba on behalf of Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the commission.
