A Federal High Court seating in Lagos has ordered former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode to pay a fine of N200,000 for failing to appear in court for his re-arraignment.

Fani-Kayode had given the excuse of having bed rest.

The court had asked the counsel to Mr Fani-Kayode, F. Ajudua, to choose between revoking the bail of the second defendant or paying the fine. He went for the latter and the former minister was duly fined.

Fani-Kayode recently defected from PDP to the APC, describing President Muhammadu Buhari as a leader determined to salvage Nigerians from ongoing economic and security challenges.
