A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, slumped in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
The Special Assistant to Fani-Kayode on Media, Jude Ndukwe, raised the alarm in a statement On Monday night. Ndukwe said Fani Kayode slumped in the custody of the EFCC on Saturday.
Operatives of the EFCC had last Friday re-arrested Fani-Kayode outside the premises of the Federal High Court on Oyinkan Abayomi Drive, Ikoyi, Lagos.
Fani-Kayode was picked up after attending his trial over an alleged fraud of N4.9bn before Justice Muslim Hassan.
He was arrested as soon as he stepped out of the courtroom after the judge had adjourned further proceedings in his trial till November 14 and 15, 2016.
Ndukwe said in the statement that his boss had been on medication.
He said, “Although Chief Femi Fani-Kayode had yet to complete the recovery therapy he was undergoing after spending the initial 67 gruelling days in the EFCC custody wherein he was also physically attacked by one of the commission’s agents, in deference to the law and the Commission, he painfully but willingly cut short his therapy and medical checks to attend court proceedings
