Fani-Kayode Critically Ill, May Die In EFCC’s Custody

The Peoples Democratic Party(PDP)has on Tuesday afternoon raised an alarm over the state of health of the Former Minister Of Avation, Fani-Kayode who is currently in the custody of the Economic And Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC).

Recall that Fani-Kayode who was the spokesperson for the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation in 2015 was re-arrested on Friday in Lagos by the anti-graft agency.

Fani-Kayode was said to have slumped on Saturday at the EFCC’s custody.

Reacting, PDP said that the re-arrest of Fani-Kayode within the premises of a Federal High Court in Lagos “is the latest in a series of plans designed to further harass and intimidate our members and supporters using the security and intelligence apparatus of the Nigerian State”.

The party, in a statement by its spokesperson, Dayo Adeyeye, recalled that a few days before his arrest, Mr. Fani-Kayode’s wife, Precious Chikwendu, and their eight-month-old son, Aragorn, were arrested and would have been detained “but for the timely intervention of Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti
State”.

“What is not common knowledge is that at the time of his arrest, Chief Fani-Kayode was ill and taking medication. Since his arrest, he has been denied access to his medication and medical doctors who are conversant with his medical history,” the party said.

It also said that officials of the EFCC continued to deny Chief Fani-Kayode access to his medication up till Tuesday morning.

“The only conclusion that can be reached is that the APC-led Federal Government and EFCC want Chief Fani-Kayode to die in detention.”

“In the light of the prevailing circumstances where EFCC are detaining an obviously weak and ill man, this is an inescapable conclusion.”

“These continuous violation of the constitutional rights and freedom of the Nigerian people by the Buhari Administration must stop.”

“The Federal Government cannot, and must not, be allowed to continually infringe on the rights of the very people it swore to uphold.”

“We call on all well-meaning Nigerians to urge the Federal Government to desist from its path of human rights abuses,” PDP said.
