EFCC wants to kill Fani-Kayode, aide raises alarm

28 June 2016, 12:01

Abuja - The spokesman of detained former Aviation Minister Femi Fani-Kayode has alleged that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is trying kill the former minister by detaining him without trial for up to three months, Naij reports.

Jude Ndukwe, said the operative of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) who allegedly assaulted him (Fani-Kayode) in custody will not be punished.

He said the pardon given to the operative is in line with the plan of the anti-graft agency to keep Fani-Kayode in custody for as long as possible until he is killed.

A report by News24 revealed that an EFCC operative identified as Kabiru Suleiman allegedly assaulted Fani-Kayode for praying while in custody of the agency.

An anonymous source claimed that EFCC operatives whose staff are mainly Muslims and of the northern origin harbor some inexplicable hatred for him for daring to criticize the policies and leadership style of president Buhari who they consider as their own.

According to Ndukwe, an inside source alleged that a senior operative of the EFCC had told Fani-Kayode to the hearing of those around that they would make sure he is kept in custody for another 5 years without trial.
