Former Aviation minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode allegedly slumped in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at the weekend.
His Special Adviser on Media, Jude Ndukwe, alleged in a statement, yesterday night, that Fani-Kayode slumped in detention on Saturday, October 22, 2016 and that only quick intervention saved his life.
EFCC re-arrested the former minister the premises of a Lagos court, last week.
“But for the quick and professional intervention of the medical team in the EFCC medical facilities, the story could have been different, it could have been fatal! We must commend the medical staff at the commission’s medical facility. They were prompt in their response and impressive in their care. It is heartwarming to know that some professionals have not allowed political witchhunt and persecution of political opponents and perceived enemies taint their professional calling. We hope this extends to all facets of the Nigerian society.”
Ndukwe wondered why Fani-Kayode was re-arrested when the commission knew of his health status and “he has not failed to appear before the commission or even before the courts at any time, neither has he ever been declared wanted?”
EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren’s did not pick calls from Daily Sun yesterday night.
