Fani-Kayode Denies Sending Message To All Christians From Detention

Published

Femi Fani-kayodeA former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, who was allegedly manhandled while in custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, by one of its operative, has denied writing a message to Christians from detention.

Mr. Fani-Kayode, who was Director of Media and Publicity of the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign in the last general elections, is standing trial alongside a former senator and former Finance Minister, Esther Nenadi, Danjuma Yusuf and a company, Joint Trust Nigeria Limited, on 17-count charges.

The former Aviation Minister, who was remanded in prison custody along with his co-accused by a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos on Tuesday, purportedly issued a widely circulated statement on social media yesterday, alleging that his detention and manhandling in EFCC custody because he was leading other inmates in singing Christian songs, was part of a larger plot to Islamize Nigeria.

He also purportedly claimed that the hijab crisis playing out in Osun State and Religious Bill in Kaduna State was another unfolding agenda of those planning to suppress Christianity in the country.

Mr. Fani-Kayode, however, distanced himself from the state message, describing it as part of what he termed “a log and systematic plot” by mischief makers, to impugn his character and cause disaffection among his friends, associates and supporters.

That message was part of a long and systematic plot by mischief makers, his traducers and detractors to continue to discredit and malign his person and character, and cause disaffection among his friends, associates and supporters. We therefore urge members of the public to disregard that message and treat it as non-existent”, a terse statement issued by the former minister’s aide, Jude Ndukwe, said on Thursday.
