A former Minister of Aviation, Chief Fani Kayode, has taken to Facebook to apologise to Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) over the alleged insinuation that the commission had raided the residence of Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, on Tuesday.
The post read, “Why have the EFCC surrounded the home of CJN Onnoghen and why are they seeking to arrest him? These people want Nigeria to burn! Buhari call off your dogs before it is too late!”

However, EFCC threatened to sue him for defamation, describing him as a purveyor of fake news.
Fani-Kayode then took to Facebook to apologise for his earlier post and said some people came to search the CJN’s house.
He also insinuated that Onnoghen’s bank accounts had been frozen by agents of the Federal Government.
Former Minister of Aviation said, “Yesterday I was informed by usually reliable sources that EFCC were positioned outside CJN’s home. I have since discovered that the men were not from EFCC and I removed the posting. The error is regretted.
“Meanwhile can the Federal Government tell us which agency sent those men? Again is it true that a television journalist was arrested at the scene and his camera and footage confiscated? If so, why?
“Finally is it true that the Attorney General has ordered the NFIU to freeze Onnoghen’s bank accounts. Questions, questions, questions! The tyranny continues unabated.”
