FORMER Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani Kayode, on Monday night slammed President Muhammadu Buhari and the EFCC over the alleged detention of his wife and eight-month-old son by Access Bank Plc, “on the orders of the EFCC.”
He said in a statement issued in Abuja: “This government 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 Ayo 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 eight-month-old son, Aragorn, and wife, Precious Chikwendu, were illegally detained, brutalised and put under arrest on the orders of the EFCC at a bank in Ado Ekiti today.
“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 doesn’t he face me like a man instead of trying to harm and hurt my 8 month old son and wife?”
