Alleged Forgery: Fani-Kayode under fresh probe


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is probing a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode on a fresh forgery allegation before a Federal High Court, Lagos.

The Lagos EFCC office is expecting Fani-Kayode on November 24, 2021, to answer questions on possible forgery of hospital documents to hoodwink the court handling the case against him on money-laundering allegations with a view to stalling hearing.

It was gathered that Fani-Kayode might well be deploying a contrived method between him and some medical personnel on the medical excuses to enable him to evade trial.

The EFCC, after receiving the defendant’s latest letter, observed the trend Fani-Kayode’s letters had taken in getting adjournments and decided to take a hard look at the development.

The agency observed all the letters were supposedly issued from the Kubwa General Hospital, Abuja, except one issued from the Federal Staff Hospital, Federal Ministry of Health, Abuja.

The letters were signed by different doctors, with the last one in October stating that the “patient (Fani-Kayode) has been diagnosed by one Dr. S. A. Tobechukwu” and signed by him.

It was also learned that the agency wrote to the Kubwa General Hospital on October 12, 2021, seeking the authenticity of the letter. The hospital replied the next day, October 13, 2021, debunking Fani-Kayode’s claim and declaring there was no Doctor Tobechukwu in its employment and that none of the names of the ‘doctors’ who purportedly issued the five letters existed in the hospital’s records.

The hospital also disclosed that no Femi Fani-Kayode had ever been diagnosed or treated as a patient at the hospital. The letterhead on the paper that Fani-Kayode used for his letters, the hospital stated, was fake and did not bear its reference number, just as the format of the patient’s number that he used did not tally with the format in the hospital’s database.
