Fani-Kayode slumped in EFCC custody —Aide

Former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, was said to have slumped in the custody of the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Abuja.

The former minster’s aide, Jude Ndukwe, in a press statement issued late Monday said Chief Fani-Kayode slumped while in detention on Saturday, October 22.

He said that 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.”

Chief Fani-Kayode’s media aide, while recalling what the former minister went through in the hands of the commission’s operatives during his first 67 days incarceration, said the health condition worsened because he painfully but willingly cut short his therapy and medical check to attend to court proceedings.

“We reiterate our earlier stand that nothing untoward must happen to Chief Fani-Kayode, whether now or in the nearest future,” he said.
