Former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to a recent threat made to him by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff that he will be dealt with.
Mr Fani-Kayode who is a member of the PDP had criticised the recent appointment of Senator Sheriff as the Chairman of his party, as he allegedly described him as the founder of Boko Haram.
However, Sheriff, who was the former governor of Borno state on Monday, February 22, after officially taking over the leadership of the party, said that Fani-kayode will not go scot-free.
He said, “No one has ever accused me of supporting Boko Haram, no court of competent jurisdiction has ever linked me with Boko Haram. I will do one thing this time round. People like Femi Fani-Kayode will not go scot-free this time round. Now that I have been given the opportunity to talk, let me say that I have nothing to do with Boko Haram.
”They killed my brother, same mother and same father. They said they were going to kill me because I refused to allow them to Islamise northern Nigeria. Boko Haram (members) are criminals. My friends are all over the world. The real sponsors of Boko Haram will be caught and I have nothing to do with Boko Haram.”
In a swift reply, earlier today, Tuesday, Fani-Kayode, in a statement made available to Channels Television said:
“We are more than ready to meet Senator Ali Modu Sheriff in court. It would be a pleasure to expose him for what he is. The days of intimidating, silencing and threatening others are long over.
“If sheriff is a Goliath, let him be rest assured that he has finally met his David. Needless to say we stand by everything that we have said.”
