A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos, on Wednesday, ordered a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, to pay a fine of N200,000 for being absent from court for his re-arraignment on corruption charges.

The former minister was said to have failed to appear in court on the excuse that he was having a bed rest.

The court had asked counsel to Fani-Kayode, F. Ajudua, to choose between revoking the bail of the second defendant or paying the fine.
