Court Threatens To Declare Fani-Kayode Wanted in Alleged Forgery Case

The Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos has threatened to declare the former Minister of Aviation, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode, wanted if he fails to appear before it on the next adjourned date for his trial.

Justice Olubumni Abike-Fadipe noted that the last time the former Aviation Minister appeared before the court was November 4, 2022.

Mr. Fani-Kayode is standing trial on a 12-count charge bordering on the use of false documents and fabricated evidence, procuring the execution of documents by false pretense and fabricating evidence.

He pleaded not guilty to the charge when he was first arraigned on December 17, 2021. 

Since his arraignment and commencement of trial, the defendant has been absent at his trial on at least three adjourned dates, a development which the judge has frowned upon.
