EFCC Asks Court To Revoke Femi Fani-Kayode’s Bail.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Wednesday, asked the Federal High Court in Abuja to cancel the bail granted to a former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode.

EFCC’s lawyer, Mohammed Abubakar, who pleaded for Justice John Tsoho to grant his appeal, said that Fani-Kayode had continued to be absent in court for his trial lately.

Abubakar, who requested the court to issue a bench warrant on the defendant, also urged the court to convene his certainty to prove the cause why the bail bond should not be passed over.

NAN reports that the ex-minister was confirmed to N50 million bail bond with a certainty in the like sum on November 10, 2016.

EFCC alleges Fani-Kayode diverted N26 million he had received from the embattled National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.) during former President, Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.

Nevertheless, the defence counsel, Mr Wale Balogun, urged the court to dismiss the EFCC’s oral application.
