Femi Fani-Kayode has denied the claims going round that he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

According to him, he was only brought in for questioning at the Lagos office.  

He disclosed that the officials were professional in carrying out their duties as he was granted bail afterwards.

"I was never arrested by the EFCC, only invited for questioning.

"Just arrived at the George Hotel for dinner. I was never arrested by the EFCC. I was invited and I flew down to Lagos to see them. 

"I arrived in their office at 2 pm and left at 8.30 pm. 

"I was granted bail on self-recognition. They were very polite and professional. Thanks be to God." 

Fani-Kayode who is standing trial on an alleged N4.6 billion fraud before Justice Daniel Osiagor of the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos.

The EFCC had charged him alongside a former Minister of Finance, Nenadi Usman, and two others on 17 counts of conspiracy, money laundering, and fraud.

At the last sitting of the court on October 13, the judge had imposed a cost of N200,000 on him due to his failure to appear before the court for his re-arraignment following the transfer of the former trial judge, Justice Rilwan Aikawa.

He was ordered to pay the fine or stand the risk of having his bail revoked after he failed to appear before the court for his re-arraignment.

Officials of the anti-graft agency confirmed he was invited to answer questions relating to the forgery of a medical report which he allegedly procured to evade his trial before a Federal High Court in Lagos.

The commission said it would give an update on the interrogation later when it concludes its investigations.
