  • After challenging the security officials with his credentials
  • 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 .
