The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has re-arrested a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode.

Fani-Kayode was re-arrested by operatives of the anti-graft about 1.55pm outside the premises of a Federal High Court on Oyinkan Abayomi Drive, Ikoyi, Lagos.

Fani-Kayode, who was in court for his trial over an alleged fraud of ‎N4.9bn, was re-arrested shortly after he stepped out of the court premises.

Fani had become the lone voice of the opposition against the Buhari administration in the recent months. Fani had spoken courageously against the excesses of the Buhari administration in its brazen invasion of Judges’ homes by the Nigerian secret police.
