Fani-Kayode Unable To Meet EFCC’s $1m Bail Condition- Lawyer
Ifedayo Adedipe (SAN), counsel to Femi Fani-Kayode, former Minister of Aviation and director of Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation, yesterday told an FCT High Court, Apo, Abuja that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) asked his client to produce $1million as part of his bail term, which he has not been able to meet.
Adedipe during the hearing on the violation of fundamental rights suit filed against the EFCC told Justice Olukayode Adeniyi that Fani-Kayode was offered bail by the EFCC but he has only been able to meet part of the conditions.
