FULL DETAILS: EFCC Reacts to Arrest of Fani-Kayode's Wife

The arrest and brief detention of Precious Chikwendu, the wife of Femi Fani-Kayode, at an Access bank in Ado Ekiti yesterday is generating some ripples, OluFamous.Com observed. Fani-Kayode and Precious are both claiming innocence but the EFCC has a contrary story.

In a statement by EFCC's spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, on Monday night, the anti-graft agency said Fani-Kayode's wife attempted to withdraw money from one of their account on lock down.

Read the details as released by EFCC:
“Contrary to the spin about the purported arrest of mother and child, a certain Chikwendu Sonia today attempted to withdraw money from an Access Bank account that had been placed on ‘Post No Debit’ Category, following the discovery of illicit cash flows into the account.

“She was intercepted by the bank while the commission was notified, but because it was late, the EFCC advised that the suspect be taken to the police station for processing and release on bail.

“They were arranging to take the suspect to the police station when Governor Ayo Fayose stormed the bank with thugs and his personal security and forcefully secured the release of the suspect, with claims that the EFCC had no power to detain anybody in his state. He also vowed to close down the branch of the bank.

The said account, which had a balance of N2,307,712.82 (N2.3Billion), was flagged following investigation into the PDP Joint Trust Fund when the commission traced N1.1bn to the Zenith Bank account of Fani-Kayode.

“It was discovered that the account had two biometric identification numbers, one for Fani-Kayode and the other (with BVN 2205597283) for Sonia Chikwendu. The same BVN is linked to two other accounts in Diamond Bank and 15 accounts in Guaranty Trust Bank.”

Fani-Kayode need to release another statement to tell us why all these 15 accounts in one bank, etc.
