Fani-Kayode must not die in detention, says PDP

It was gathered that the Peoples Democratic Party has said a former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, must not be allowed to die in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

The PDP said the arrest of the former Spokesperson for the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation was what it described as the latest in a series of plans designed to further harass and intimidate its members and supporters using the security and intelligence apparatus of the Nigerian State.

Spokesperson for the former ruling party, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, stated this in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday.

Adeyeye alleged that since his arrest, the former minister had not been able to take his medication.

He said, “What is not common knowledge is that at the time of his arrest, 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.

“As of the time of writing this statement, officials of the EFCC have continued to deny Fani-Kayode access to his medication.

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

Adeyeye accused the EFCC of detaining “an obviously weak and ill man.”

He alleged that the the action of the commission violates the constitutional rights and freedoms of the Nigerian people, and called on the government to halt such action.

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

The former minister of works called on all well meaning Nigerians to urge the Federal Government to desist from what he described as “its path of human rights abuses.”
