I am Fayose’s lawyer, Fani-Kayode tells EFCC



A mild drama ensued outside the Tunde Idiagbon House , former head office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission when operatives of the EFCC attempted to bar a former Minister of Aviation , Chief Femi Fani -Kayode , from accompanying former Governor Ayodele Fayose into the premises .
Fani – Kayode , who obtained an LL . B from the School of Oriental and African Studies and a Masters degree from Cambridge University, noted that he was a lawyer and had practised in Nigeria .

After challenging the security officials with his credentials , he was allowed in .

While going in , Fani – Kayode joked with the EFCC operatives that he ought to be allowed unto the premises at any time having spent 90 non -consecutive days in the custody of the commission in 2016.

“I am a regular customer here . You should know me by now, ” he joked .

Chief Mike Ozekhome ( SAN ) , who has been representing Fayose in court since his recent case with the EFCC began , also took three lawyers from his chambers into the EFCC before leaving.
