A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, will remain in custody till his arraignment by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on November 10, Premium Times can report.

EFCC sources said Mr. Fani-Kayode would be charged for allegedly receiving about N26 million from a former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.

The sources said if granted bail on the same day, the EFCC will rearrest Mr. Fani-Kayode and slam fresh charges against him for allegedly collecting another N22 million from Mr. Dasuki.

The money is part of the $2.1 billion infamous arms scandal. EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed that Mr. Fani-Kayode will be arraigned on November 10, but said the report of a re-arrest was a “mere rumour”.

“It is true he has been served (on the N26 million charge) and the case will come up on November 10,” 
Mr. Uwujaren said. He added that the claim the former aviation minister might be arrested again on that day over new allegations of N22 million was a “mere rumour.”
