Again, EFCC raids Fani-Kayode’s residence

Again, EFCC raids Fani-Kayode’s residence

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) returned to the Abuja residence of Femi Fani-Kayode, former director of publicity of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign.

This was disclosed by Jude Ndukwe, media aide of the PDP chieftain.

Last Friday, the commission laid a siege to Fani-Kaode’s house for eight hours, and he reported to the agency on Monday following an invitation to answer questions on “criminal conspiracy, fraud and money laundering”.

He has remained in custody since then.

However, Ndukwe said the anti-graft agency had been harassing his boss, saying Thursday’s raid was the fourth in the last one week.

“Earlier today, the EFCC invaded the residence of Chief Femi Fani-Kayode even when he was still in their custody,” he said in a statement.

“What miffed us most was their mode of operation which was forceful, provocative and dangerous as they wielded their guns with needless threats.

“The worst is that the invasion was without a warrant as they forced their way in, and after terrifying all the staff at home including the infant, they whisked the laundry man away even though he was later released.

“This is the fourth time the EFCC operatives would be invading Chief Fani-Kayode’s residence in just one week. We condemn this act of executive lawlessness, harassment and intimidation. Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has served this country even at the highest levels and he deserves some courtesy.

“We call on the EFCC to endeavour to carry out their functions within the ambit of our laws and stop brazenly  betraying the fact that Chief Fani-Kayode is under persecution. The world is watching!”
