Fayose Rescues FFK’s Wife, Son from EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, on Monday detained Precious Chikwendu, the wife of the spokesman of the People’s Democratic Party, Presidential Campaign Organisation and former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, and his son, Aragorn.

Fani-Kayode in a statement Monday evening, said his wife had gone to Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, to see Governor Ayodele Fayose when she stopped at the branch of Access Bank to withdraw some money.

The statement by Fani-Kayode suggested that the staff of the Bank invited the operatives of the EFCC who stormed the Bank and detained, brutalized and humiliated Chikwendu who was with her 8 months old baby.


Upon hearing of Chikwendu’s detention, Governor Fayose stormed the bank, forcing the managemane of Access Bank to shut down its operations.

Newsday learnt that the account Fani Kayode’s wife attempted to withdraw funds from was linked to slush provided by detained former National Security Adviser, Dasuki. The account is part of the subject of the former Aviation minister’s ongoing prosecution for fraud at a Federal High Court in Lagos.

Femi Fani Kayode has said the arrest was an indirect way of getting at him by the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

After freeing Chikwendu from the hold of the EFCC, Mr. Fayose then marched back to the bank premises to close down the bank, swearing that the bank would never operate in Ekiti during the remainder of his tenure as governor.
