A witness in the ongoing trial of Femi Fani-Kayode, former Minster of Aviation, has narrated how he allegedly paid N820,000 for fake medical reports.

The ex-minister, who is standing trial for alleged corruption, had reportedly forged medical reports to evade appearing in court.

Testifying before a special offences court in Lagos, ABIDAT, a media practitioner, narrated how she was called by Fani-Kayode to procure the medical reports for different amount.

She said Fani-Kayode gave her N120,000 for the first forged medical certificate, N150,000 for the second forged medical report, N250,000 to procure the third forged medical report and N300,000 for the fourth forged medical report.

She also told Justice O.O Abike-Fadipe that Fani-Kayode dictated what should be the content of the medical report should contain.

Fani-Kayode is facing 12 counts before Justice Abike-Fadipe, brought against him by the EFCC, following his alleged use of forged medical report(s), tendered before Justice Daniel Osiagor of the Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos, where he is being prosecuted by the EFCC for an alleged N4.9billion fraud.

One of the counts reads: “That you, Femi Fani-Kayode, on or about the 11th day of October, 2021 in Lagos, within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court, by fraudulently used a false document titled: MEDICAL REPORT ON OLUFEMI FANI-KAYODE 60 YEARS/MALE/HOSP.
