Ex-Minister of Aviation and campaign spokesman for former President Goodluck Jonathan caused panic and triggered anxiety today when he arrived at the 5-star Wheatbaker Hotel in Lagos with 15 heavily armed policemen. The hotel is located at......4 Onitolo Road (former Lawrence Road) in Ikoyi, an upscale area of Lagos.
The fierce-looking police officers were from the anti-riot unit.
Judgment will be delivered tomorrow in a long-running corruption trial in which Mr. Fani-Kayode is the defendant. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) filed the corruption charges against the former Jonathan aide and ex-minister at a Federal High Court in Lagos.
Guests at Wheatbaker Hotel, especially expatriates, panicked at the sight of the police officers. Some of the hotel’s expatriate guests reportedly made frantic calls to their embassies as the armed policemen entered the hotel’s reception area and started acting in a manner that was deemed intimidating.
