Afenifere demands for the immediate release of Femi Fani-Kayode
The National Publicity Secretary, Mr Yinka Odumakin, Yoruba socio-cultural organization – Afenifere in a press statement released demanded for the immediate bail of former Minister of Aviation, Mr Femi Fani-Kayode, who was accused of and detained for N1.5bn fraud by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
Afenifere stated that the order was made on hearing that EFCC was planning on issuing another detention order to ensure that Fani-Kayode was made to remain in detention. Here is an excerpt from the press statement:
“Afenifere demands immediate release of Femi Fani-Kayode who will be clocking five weeks in EFCC cell on Wednesday. We are being told that EFCC is planning to get another detention order to continue his incarceration. We are at a loss as to why EFCC announced to the whole world that he committed a crime by collecting campaign fund and holds him for five weeks without charging him to court. It is in the same country that EFCC accused one Jafaru Isa of collecting money for election and allowed him to go after a night in EFCC cell. Why is Fani-kayode situation different if indeed it is all about corruption and not a ploy to keep him out of circulation for his critical views, especially on the criminalities of the Fulani herdsmen. We demand that he be charged to court immediately or set free if there is no charge against him.”
