OYOGist.com has learned that the Economic and Financial Crime Commission has urged the Abuja Federal High Court to reverse the bail granted to Chief Femi Fani Kayode, a former Nigerian Aviation Minister and a PDP chieftain.
This was contained in a prayer made by the EFCC’s Lawyer, Mohammed Abubakar, to the Justice John Tsoho led court on the grounds that Chief Femi Fani Kayode had continued to be absent from his ongoing trial lately.
Tge EFCC alleged that Chief Fani Kayode, during the during former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, allegedly diverted the sum of N26 million received from the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.).
The EFCC prayer was however challenged by the defence counsel to Chief Fani Kayode, Mr. Wale Balogun, who urged the court to dismiss the EFCC’s prayer terming it as an ‘oral application.’
As at the time of filing the report, the case is still on going.(NAN)
