A former aide to former Nigerian President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, Reno Omokri has taken to social media to react to the arrest saga of former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode.
Naija News had reported earlier that Nigeria’s anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Tuesday, November 23 arrested FFK.
The former minister was said to have arrived at the Lagos office of the anti-graft agency at about 1 pm yesterday in the company of his lawyer.
He is accused of forgery and manipulation of documents. It’s not the first time the former aviation minister is been grilled by the EFCC.
However, in a statement made available to Naija News later on Tuesday, the former Minister confirmed that he is out from the office of the EFCC.
FFK who recently defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), claimed in the statement that he was not arrested by the anti-graft agency.
The politician said he was only invited by the anti-graft commission and he honoured their invitation.
Fani-Kayode explained further that he arrived at the EFCC office in Lagos around 2 pm and left around 8.30 pm after he was granted bail on self-recognition.
“Just arrived at the George Hotel for dinner. I was never arrested by the EFCC. I was invited & I flew down to Lagos to see them. I arrived in their office at 2.00 pm & left at 8.30 pm.”
“I was granted bail on self-recognition. They were very polite & professional. Thanks be to God,” he narrated in the statement.
Indirectly reacting to Fani-Kayode’s arrest saga, Reno Omokri in a post on his verified Instagram page wrote: “The facts speak for themselves. Again, I reiterate that when you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes!”
