EFCC Arrests and Detains Fani-Kayode's Wife... He Cries Out

According to Femi Fani-Kayode, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission arrested his wife, Precious Chikwendu, during her visit to Governor Ayo Fayose in Ekiti State yesterday. The former minister made some strong allegations in a statement he released. His words:
This govt is sick and cowardly and so are the EFCC. If you have a problem with me face me and leave my family alone.
My wife travelled to Ado Ekiti to see my friend and brother Governor Fayose and his family. They were on their way out of town when they went to Access Bank in Ado Ekiti to get some money.

When they got there my 8 month old son Aragorn and wife Precious Chikwendu were illegally detained, brutalised and put under arrest on the orders of EFCC at a bank in Ado Ekiti (on Monday).

She has never had any business with me, she has never been formally invited by the EFCC or asked any questions about her transactions and neither have they written to her on any issue even though they are always sending letters to my house and sending people there.

If Buhari wants to deal with me why doesnt he face me like a man obstead of trying to harm and hurt my 8 month old son and wife.

Had it not been for the intervention of Governor Ayo Fayose they would have taken them away and subjected them to all manner of harm and indignities simply because she is married to me.

This was an account that has 200,000 naira in it and that has never had more than 500,000 naira.

She has operated it since 2005 and she stopped using it in 2013. The account has no connection with me and I did not know it existed till today.

In an attempt to starve and harass me and my family all my accounts and wife's accounts have been frozen. Now they are resorting to arresting peoples wives and children for no just cause.

I thank God for Gov. Fayose and the people of Ado Ekiti who stormed the bank and freed my wife from this illegal detention and attempt to kidnap them.

Had it not been for the governors intervention and prescence the bank would have been burnt down by the crowd. My family have since left Ekiti state.

This is Buhari's Nigeria and we will resist his wickedness and tyranny.

We intend to sue the bank and to sue the EFCC for this illegal and wicked action. They have no right to do this. If they want to see my wife all they need to do is to invite her. We have nothing to fear. They do not need to be so primitive and barbaric to people.

  1. I don't support this harassment. Invite her if you have any anything to do with her

  2. Nemesis. Governors subversion of the duties of constituted authorities and institutions must stop. Wike did it,now fayose. How many market women have they helped fight injustice. God's wrought will fall on your heads one day. Treat everyone equally. No one life is better than the other,we are all born the same way.

  3. Access Bank should thread carefully while carrying out due diligence..... If post no debit is on an account,act professionally rather than subjecting your customer to ill-treatment as this is becoming political.

  4. Back to stone age, the shame of Nigeria. Good news is that by the grace of God this barbarism and tyranny will come to an end soon in Jesus Name.

    A fixated people in wickedness like Pharoah must fall; it is a matter of time.

    FFK, please keep the spirit alive!!!

  5. I honestly do not want to associate with this kind of embarrassment by any law enforcement agency in our land, for crying out aloud, this country is practicing democracy,let us feel belonged in this country. Enough of this harassment.

  6. Obanikoro and family should face their ordeal and stop seeking for sympathy. Can they imagine how many (generation) families that has deprive of good life or permanently extinct because of their wickedness, corruption etc? The judgement of God is still coming this is just the beginning -

  7. From Abuja to Ado-Ekiti to withdraw money.
    Thief dey smell.

  8. You wife want to withdraw money from the back door sir. P

  9. Fayose don't have work. Am sorry for Ekiti people.
