Fani Kayode and Obanikoro Bonds in EFCC Cell

Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation mouth-piece, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode was said to have allegedly collapsed yesterday at the premises of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC where he is being held in their care, pretty much as the family has raised alert over an attempt on his life. 

However, the EFCC rejected the claim saying there was no truth in it . EFCC representative, Wilson Uwujaren said: "There is no truth at all in the statement that Fani-Kayode slumped and was restored by EFCC medical personnel. There was nothing like that as the said Fani-kayode and Obanikoro sat together and making the most of their jokes at the first round of checks of prisoners in EFCC authority on Monday night, the Vanguard reports.

Meanwhile, A former presidential spokesperson, Dr. Reuben Abati is also in the EFCC'S net.

Abati, who was spokesperson to former President Goodluck Jonathan, was arrested yesterday by the anti-graft agency.

The journalist is being questioned for allegedly receiving some money from former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, a source at the EFCC said.

Abati’s arrest makes it at least three former aides of Jonathan who are currently in EFCC’s custody.
