Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation, has honoured the invitation of the police at the force headquarters, Abuja.
The police had invited Fani-Kayode over alleged conspiracy, criminal and inciting publication.
Habu Sani, commissioner of police in charge of IG monitoring unit, force headquarters, signed the letter inviting him for questioning.
In response, the former minister had said the letter was vague and asked the police to fix a new date because the invitation was sent on short notice.
In a statement released early on Tuesday, Fani-Kayode said the police want to question him over one of his essays.
“I will report to the inspector-general of police’s office at Force Headquarters in Abuja at 12.00 noon today in response to the invitation that they sent to me last week,” he said.
“The invitation indicated that they want to question me about one of my essays. The Lord is with us.”
Following the sit-down with the police, Deji Adeyanju, an associate of Fani-Kayode, alleged that the “government got someone to write a petition” against him.
He wrote in a Facebook post: ”We are done with the Police. It’s all a plot to silence critics of the government. Government got someone to write a petition against FFK to the police that he was defamed.
“Defamation is a civil case, go to court if you were defamed not use IGP to intimidate people.”
