A former Aviation Minister and member of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Femi Fani-Kayode was on Tuesday dragged before the Special Offences Court in Ikeja, for allegedly procuring a fake medical report.
The controversial former minister was dragged by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission before Justice O.O. Abike-Fadipe.
According to the EFCC, Fani-Kayode procured one Dr Ogieva Oziegbe to issue him a fake medical report, which he was said to have tendered before the Federal High Court in his ongoing money laundering trial.
The anti-graft agency brought Fani-Kayode to court on 12 counts.
Part of the charge sheet read, “That you Femi Fani-Kayode on or about the 11th day of October 2021 in Lagos within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court with intent to mislead the Federal High Court Lagos Judicial Division in charge No. FHC/L/251C/2016 fabricated documentary evidence titled: MEDICAL REPORT ON OLUFEM! FANI KAYODE 60 YEARS/MALE/HOSP. NO.00345 DATED 11/10/2021 and purported same to have been issued by Kubwa General Hospital.”
The EFCC is pressing that the offence is contrary to and punishable under section 88(1) (a) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015.
