Abuja - Former aviation minister Femi Fani-Kayode has declared that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has no business freezing his account, as the anti-graft agency stepped up its investigation into the alleged N4billion campaign bazaar cash received from ex-president Goodluck Jonathan in the build-up to the 2015 elections.
The funds were allegedly withdrawn from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and shared to 10 other directors, directorates, zonal directors and state directors of the Presidential Campaign Organization of Jonathan.
Fani-Kayode on Friday denied that the withdrawal of the cash from the CBN or funding of the campaign by the former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki.
But he admitted that campaign funds were paid into the account of a company linked with former minister of finance, Nenadi Usman, from where it was shared to him and others.
According to The Herald, Fani-Kayode said he could not sit by silently while his name was dragged through the mud.
I am constrained to take this opportunity to state the facts of this matter, set the record straight and await my traducers and accusers to make their next move. It is indeed time to challenge those that are making these allegations and to kill the lie.
