Fani-Kayode In Serious Trouble As EFCC Files Fresh Charges Against Him

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has filed fresh money laundering charges against a former Minister of Aviation, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode.

The fresh charges were filed before the Federal High Court in Abuja.

Fani-Kayode, Director of Media and Publicity in the campaign organisation of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, is already standing trial before the Lagos Division of the Federal High Court.

He is facing 17 counts of money laundering before the Lagos Division of the court, along with a former Finance Minister, Nenadi Usman; Danjuma Yusuf and a firm, Joint Trust Dimension Nig. Ltd.

They were charged with unlawful retention, unlawful use and unlawful payment of money to the tune of N4.9bn.

But in the fresh charges numbered, FHC/ABJ/CR/140/2016, Fani-Kayode is the sole defendant.

The EFCC in the fresh case filed five counts in which it accused the defendant of diverting N26m allegedly received from the Office of the National Security Adviser while Sambo Dsuki was in office.

The EFCC also accused him of handling the said N26m without going through financial institution as required under the Money Laundering Act.

    The law court this days are just bias with their judgments which affects the trust of the people on EFCC.
    Won’t be surprise again if he is guilty and the court over rules such.

    Just an accusation, no proof yet.
    Until the court decides then we will know who is guilty here.
