Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in Lagos.
It was gathered that Fani-Kayode is under investigation for alleged forgery and manipulation of documents.
According to reports, the ex-minister was brought to the Lagos Zonal Office of the anti-graft agency on Tuesday.
The details of the allegations against him were insufficient but the EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed Fani-Kayode’s arrest by operatives.
“I think something like that happened,” he said and declined to comment further.
Fani-Kayode who rejoined the All Progressives Congress in September had been having a running trial with the EFCC for some time and he was once kept in the custody of the EFCC for 67 days in 2016 alongside a former minister of finance, Nenadi Usman.
The two men including two others were facing a 17-count of criminal conspiracy, fraud and money laundering to the tune of N4.9 billion.
They denied the allegations and were later granted N250 million bail.
