    Fani Kayode And Wife Operated 15 Accounts In One Bank- EFCC Reveals

    The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has revealed that former Aviation Minister Femi Fani Kayode and his wife Sonia operated an Access Bank account which had two Biometric Identification Numbers linked to fifteen other accounts in Guarantee Trust Bank (GTB) and two others in Diamond Bank.

    In a statement late Monday night, the EFCC claimed that contrary to reports that Mrs Fani-Kayode was detained by the Commission, she was intercepted by the bank for trying to make withdrawals from an Access Bank account that had been placed on 'Post No Debit' Category, following the discovery of illicit cash flows into the account.

    The EFCC statement which was signed by the Head, Media & Publicity Wilson Uwujaren reads thus;

    “Contrary to the media spin about the purported arrest of mother and child, a certain Chikwendu Sonia today attempted to withdraw money from an Access Bank account that had been placed on 'Post No Debit' Category, following the discovery of illicit cash flows into the account.

    “She was intercepted by the bank while the Commission was notified but because it was late, the EFCC advised that the suspect be taken to the police station for processing and release on bail.

    “They were arranging to take the suspect to the police station when Governor Ayo Fayose stormed the bank with thugs and his personal security and forcefully secured the release of the suspect, with claims that the EFCC had no power to detain anybody in his state. He also vowed to close down the branch of the bank.

    “The said account, which had a balance of N 2,307,712.82 was flagged following investigation into the PDP Joint Trust fund when the Commission traced N1.1billion to the Zenith Bank account of Fani-Kayode. It was discovered that the account had two biometric identification numbers, one for Fani-Kayode and the other (with BVN 2205597283) for Sonia Chikwendu. The same BVN is linked to 2 other accounts in Diamond bank and 15 accounts in Guaranty Trust Bank.”
