Money Laundering Charges: Court Bars Keyamo From Prosecuting Fani-Kayode

Femi-Fani-Kayode-2Festus Keyamo has been barred by a Federal High Court in Lagos from further prosecution of former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode over alleged money laundering charges.

Mr. Fani-Kayode was charged in 2008 with 47 counts of money laundering amounting to N500 million by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The judge, Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia said that Vitalis Ahaotu, who was appearing for Mr. Keyamo, failed to present the fiat mandating his firm to take up the case on behalf of the Attorney General of the Federation.

However, Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia declined the request by Mr. Fani-Kayode to strike out the charges against him.


  1. while he still has mouth and the guts to run down people knowing fully well that he has got plenty of dem skeletons around him? he should better learn to keep quite with his tail hidden between his legs because he is a common thief.
