Abuja – Former minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has claimed that his ongoing trial for fraud was politically motivated.

Fani-Kayode was released in Lagos, two months after his arrest, detention and arraignment by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Fani-Kayode, who was the spokesperson for the Goodluck Campaign Organisation, was arrested on May 9, allegedly for receiving N840 million nduring the build-up to the 2015 presidential election.

In a statement soon after his release, he said that he was being hounded for his criticism of the government, according to Today.

Fani-Kayode maintained that he had not committed any sin sin beyond his criticism of the government.

"I give thanks to God that I am free after 67 days in detention… This was the worst experience of my life but God was with me all the way…. These charges are politically motivated and I have been severely punished for my political views and criticisms of the government…. They are trying to silence me, break me, discredit me and destroy but as long as Jesus is on the throne this will never work.I am strong and I am bold and the struggle will continue," he was quoted as saying.
