Femi Fani-Kayode Calls For Release Of Political Prisoners – Former Minister for Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode was released from EFCC detention on Friday after being locked up for over 2 months.
Speaking after his release, Fani-Kayode revealed that his release was meaningless until other political prisoners like Iyiola Omisore and Sambo Dasuki were released.
He said: “It was quite an ordeal. It was an ordeal. But I thank God that I am free and that I have been given an opportunity to defend myself in court when the case starts – I am looking forward to that.
Outside of that, the truth is that as long as others who are also political prisoners and have been falsely accused are still in (security agencies’) custody our country, then I believe that my freedom is meaningless.
“So, until every single political prisoner or every single person falsely accused by the state, by the government and the EFCC has been released; has been given the opportunity to defend himself in court; and until that happens, I don’t think any of us is free. We still have people like Sambo Dasuki, Iyiola Omisore and many others in prison or EFCC’s custody.”
