The People Democratic Party,PDP,has condemned the Economic and Financial Crime Commission and the presidency over the arrest of the wife and son of former spokesperson of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode in Ado- Ekiti.
The party described the event as a new move in the Federal Government’s resolve to harass, and persecute real, and perceived enemies of the Buhari administration.
It would be recalled that, FFK’s wife Precious Chikwendu was arrested along with her 8 month old son, Aragorn, but the timely intervention of Governor Ayo Fayose prevented her from been detained.
“It is reprehensible for the government to attack members of the families of its perceived enemies, especially wives and children, for any reason whatsoever.
“In addition to freezing Chief Fani-Kayode’s accounts, the Federal Government has ordered the freezing of accounts of his wife, Precious Chikwendu, several of which were opened and operated long before their marriage. These accounts have been frozen for no reason other than her marriage to Chief Fani-Kayode.
“The Buhari administration cannot, and must not, be allowed to continue the violation of the constitutional rights and freedoms of the Nigerian people. This sort of tyranny must not be allowed to continue unchecked.
“We have advised the family to approach the courts and enforce their legal rights in this matter,” Prince Dayo Adeyeye, national publicity secretary of the party said.
