The Capital exclusive! Femi Fani-Kayode turns pastor in EFCC cell

• Former aviation minister becomes God’s chosen, image launderer behind bars

In profile, Femi Fan-Kayode presents the sharp, narrow silhouette of an aggressive jester. The former Minister of Aviation could easily pass as the best light comedian in the country, any day.

Those who are familiar with his antics believe that he can easily build an illustrious career doing stand-up comedy.
This is because Fani-Kayode, like an unrepentant high school miscreant, is back on his grind again, telling people stories and lifting their hopes, so that he could dash them against the jagged rock of disappointment.

Even in cell, Fani-Kayode is at his ridiculous best; by a radical twist of fate, the former aviation minister has turned pastor in the EFCC cell. The Capital findings revealed that Fani-Kayode started parading himself as a holy man of God immediately he was locked behind bars. He wakes fellow inmates up in the morning with worship and praise songs and he subjects them daily to intense prayer sessions by the hour.

Besides his newfound vocation as a pastor, Fani-Kayode is also going round the jail cell promising fellow inmates that he will intervene in their favour and initiate strategic public relations efforts in their interest to repair their badly damaged reputation. Most of his newfound clients were reportedly detained by the EFCC in respect of several cases of fraud.

It would be recalled that he was detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) since he became a person of interest in an N840 million misappropriation investigation. The EFCC arrested him two weeks ago for interrogation. Under intense scructiny, Fani-Kayode admitted to receiving the money which allegedly emanated from the account of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
