The Nigeria Police Force has given a new date to former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, to honour its invitation.
The new date is following the former Minister’s request for an extension of time.
The Police in a letter dated August 23, 2018, and signed by CP Habu Sani of the Inspector-General of Police Monitoring Unit, conceded to the two demands of Fani-Kayode’s lawyers by agreeing on a new date.
It also said that the invitation to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP chieftain was in respect of criminal complaints by a law firm, Apex Solicitors.
The letter read, “I refer to your letter No KACCL/OR/372/18 dated 27th August 2018 wherein you requested for rescheduling of appointment in respect of the above subject.
“Graciously the interview is now rescheduled for Tuesday the 4th day of September 2018 by 1200hrs.
“You are however to note that, the invitation is in respect of criminal complaints lodged by Apex Solicitors (Legal Practitioners and Consultants) and your cooperation in this regard is expected, please”, it added.
The Police had summoned Fani-Kayode over an allegation of conspiracy, criminal and inciting publication.
Fani-Kayode was summoned via a letter dated August 20, 2018, and signed by the Commissioner in charge of the Inspector General of Police Monitoring Unit, Habu A. Sani.
In the letter titled, ‘Conspiracy, criminal defamation, inciting publication, injurious falsehood and conduct likely to cause breach of peace’, the police noted that the invitation was based purely on a fact-finding mission.
However, Fani-Kayode, in a letter dated August 27 by his lawyer, Kayode Ajulo & Co., stated that the police invitation letter appeared vague and ambiguous, noting that there was no mention of the complainants and the subject matter of the planned interrogation.
