Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has disclosed that Femi Fani-Kayode and Yinka Odumakin will be invited for interrogation and may be detained indefinitely for their roles in spreading fake news

This was disclosed to media practioners in Abuja by EFCC Spokesman, Mr Tony Orilade, during an interactive session in an event Organized by Online Publishers Association (OPAN) in Abuja on Wednesday, January 16, 2019.

Mr Tony reveals that the commission will invite the duo for questioning later today. And failure to show up in less than 48 hours, the Commission would take steps to get them arrested.

In a manner appearing as the commission already has a preconceived notion to keep them for a long time, the spokesman insisted that if they refuse to cooperate during interrogation, the EFCC will keep them in detention for 48 hours before proceeding to court to obtain order to keep as long as possible while the investigation continues.

it would be recalled that Femi Fani Kayode made a post that suggested that operatives from the EFCC besieged the residence of the Chief Chief Justice of Nigeria ( CJN) .yesterday evening .

Chief Yinka Odumakin also made similar allegation via video footage ,however the  EFCC denied both allegations but has vowed to prosecute those behind the allegation .

A furious Tony Orilade said that the EFCC had screened grabbed tweets from Chief Kayode ‘s tweeter  handle in preparation for prosecution and e also said , the commission has a copy of the video made by Chief Odumakin.

When Mr Mike Odeh James of Kaduna News Online accused the EFCC of selective prosecution citing the tweet of EFCC in the case of former Ekiti governor, Ayo Fayose, Mr Tony admitted that it was an error and that the EFCC later pulled it down.
Mike further opined that Fani-Kayode’s tweets too could be accepted as a mistake, and the commission too should have accepted his apology.
Though Mr Tony tactically evaded the opinion of Mr. Mike, but Rev. Emmanuel Olorunmagba raised it again and insisted that his response was needed.

Mr Tony replied the gravity of Fani-Kayode’s tweets is weightier than that of the error of EFCC which he referred to as “minor”.

  3. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on various

    another platform. I have heard great things about
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
