According to a recent revelation by Jude Ndukwe, spokesman to Femi Fani-Kayode, the operative of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) will not be punished for allegedly assaulting Mr. Kayode.
The pardon given to the operative, as Ndukwe said, is in line with the plot of the anti-graft agency to keep Fani-Kayode in custody for as long as possible until his life is terminated.
A statement released by Ndukwe alleged that the EFCC had finished all arrangements to keep Fani-Kayode in custody without trial for up to, at least, another three months, Ynaija reports.
The statement reads:
“The plan, according to our reliable sources, is for Fani-Kayode to be “punished” for his comments on national issues rather than for corruption as widely reported.
“Although the date for arraignment has been fixed for Tuesday, June 28, our investigations revealed that EFCC has no intention whatsoever to take the Ife-born chief to court, a situation that would force the court to adjourn for a long time. And with the three-month recess for judges around the corner, precisely starting on July 11, it is the plan of EFCC that Fani-Kayode would remain in custody till the judges resume sometime in October.”
An unnamed source alleged that operatives of the EFCC, whose staff are mostly Muslims and of the northern origin, have very deep hatred for Femi Fani-Kayode because of his constant boldness in criticizing the policies and leadership method of “their brother”, President Muhammadu Buhari.
Mr. Ndukwe disclosed that an inside source claimed that a senior operative of the EFCC had told Femi Fani-Kayode to the hearing of those around that they would make sure he is kept in custody for another 5 years without trial. “We will kill you and nothing would happen” he was said to have fumed without provocation”, The anti-graft operative was quoted to have said.
According to Fani-Kayode’s spokesman, the source expressed fear for Femi Fani-Kayode’s life as his life can only be saved by a miracle from the evil plot to keep him in detention as long as possible, and possibly terminate his life at a time when news about him would be of little importance to the media.
