The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has asked the Federal High Court, Abuja, to revoke the bail granted to Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Aviation Minister.

EFCC’s lawyer, Mohammed Abubakar, prayed Justice John Tsoho to grant his plea on Wednesday.

He expressed that Fani-Kayode had continued to be absent in court for his trial lately, thus enjoining the court to issue a bench warrant on the former Minister.

Abubakar also urged the court to summon his surety to show cause why the bail bond should not be forfeited.

Fani-Kayode is reportedly facing trial over alleged diversion of N26 million he had received from the embattled National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.) during former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.

However, the defence counsel, Mr. Wale Balogun, urged the court to dismiss the EFCC’s oral application.
