Fayose Vs EFCC: I’m A Customer Here, You Should Know Me – Fani-Kayode Tells Commission’s Officials
Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has told the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, that he was the lawyer to embattled former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose.
He stated this when the officials of the anti-graft agency tried to bar him from accompanying Fayose into the premises.
Fani-Kayode told them that he was a lawyer and had practised in Nigeria.
The former Minister was allowed in after challenging the security officials with his credentials.
He also told the EFCC operatives that he ought to be allowed into the premises at any time having spent 90 non-consecutive days in the custody of the commission in 2016.
“I am a regular customer here. You should know me by now,” he said.
Fayose’s lawyer, Chief Mike Ozekhome, SAN, also took three lawyers from his chambers into the EFCC office.
