Fani-Kayode’s wife’s detention in Access bank:  Her account has two BVN numbers – EFCC

The Economic of Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has advanced reason it ordered the detention of former Minister of Aviation, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode’s wife, Mrs. Precious Fani-Kayode in a branch of Access Bank in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State on Monday.

Mrs. Fani-Kayode was a guest of Governor Ayodele Fayose, and had gone to the bank with her eight-month old baby around 3.00pm but the EFCC ordered her detention.

Her host, Gov. Fayose, however, stormed the bank with thugs to secure her release about four hours after she was under arrest.

In a statement by EFCC’s spokesman, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, the anti-graft agency said Fani-Kayode’s wife attempted to withdraw money from an account which the agency had frozen.

“The said account, which had a balance of N2,307,712.82, was flagged following investigation into the PDP Joint Trust Fund when the commission traced N1.1bn 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 two other accounts in Diamond Bank and 15 accounts in Guaranty Trust Bank,” the statement reads in part.
