A former Nigerian Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has said that joining the rulling All Progressives Congress (APC) does not make him above the law.
Fani-Kayode said this after he was released from the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Tuesday.
The APC chieftain was invited by the anti-graft agency on allegations bordering on fraud and forgery.
He was reported to have gone to the office of the commission in the company of his lawyer at about 1 pm.
Speaking after his release, Fani-Kayode dismissed reports that he was arrested by the EFCC.
“Just arrived at the George Hotel for dinner. I was never arrested by the EFCC. I was invited & I flew down to Lagos to see them. I arrived in their office at 2.00 pm & left at 8.30 pm. I was granted bail on self-recognition. They were very polite & professional. Thanks be to God.
“I pity those that said I was arrested. They are filled with hate & live on fake news. Since when did an invitation & a friendly chat become an arrest? And even if I had been arrested, SO WHAT? I am not above the law & neither does joining APC give me immunity. My God is MIGHTY!,” he wrote on Instagram.
