Court acquits Femi Fani-Kayode of money laundering charges

A federal High court sitting in Lagos today discharged and acquitted former Aviation Minister Femi Fani Kayode of money laundering charges leveled against him by the EFCC.

Delivering her judgement, the presiding judge, Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia,​ said the charges brought against Fani-Kayode was 'feeble' and EFCC failed to provide 'copious evidence' that linked him to money laundering.

Fani-Kayode's trial began in 2008 when he was accused of laundering about N100 million while he was minister of culture and tourism and later Aviation minister. The money was later reduced to N2.1million in Nov. 2014 after the court dismissed 38 of the 40-count charge leveled against him. Above is a photo of him during a prayer session by friends and family.
