EFCC Secures Warrant To Further Detain Fani-Kayode

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has secured a remand warrant to further detain the Spokesman for the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, who was detained on Monday over the receipt of public funds to the tune of N840 million out of the N4 billion payout in the heat of the presidential election last year.

The remand warrant which was secured on Tuesday will enable the anti-graft agency to keep the Spokesman of the Goodluck Jonathan campaign beyond the stipulated time allowed by law.
