Lagos - The Ikeja Magistrate Court on Monday granted the Economic and Financial Commission's request to further remand Femi Fani-Kayode in its custody for another 3 weeks.
The EFCC had earlier held Fani Kayode in Abuja for 14 days pursuant to a warrant granted by an Abuja magisterial court.
Trial judge, B. O Osunsanmi in her ruling on the EFCC's application held that the defence counsel failed to attach evidence of a pending fundamental human rights suits before her court.
The judge thereafter granted the EFCC an order to hold the respondent for three weeks.
After the ruling Fani Kayode consulted with his lawyers before being whisked away by the EFCC operatives.
