A Former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has apologised to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for claiming that the commission invaded the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen’s residence on Tuesday night.
The allegation sparked the fury of the EFCC which swiftly threatened to file a libel suit against the former minister.
However, Fani-Kayode, in a new tweet, on Wednesday, apologised for his earlier comment.
He tweeted, “Yesterday I was informed by usually reliable sources that EFCC were positioned outside CJN’s home. I have since discovered that the men were not from EFCC and I removed the posting. The error is regretted.
“Meanwhile can the Federal Government tell us which agency sent those men and why they beat a retreat? Again is it true that a television journalist was arrested at the scene and his camera and footage confiscated? If so, why?
“Finally is it true that the Attorney General has ordered the NFIU to freeze Onnoghen’s bank accounts. Questions, questions, questions! The tyranny continues unabated.”
