Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation who, for the past 67 says, has been in the detention camp of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and released on Friday, July 15, 2016, shared a moving photo of his reunion with his baby son just before midnight.
The politician took to Facebook to share the photo taken at his home with the caption, “Back with my son Aragon after 2 months in the gulag. I missed him so much. He is my everything.”
The People’s Democratic Party stalwart was arrested by the EFCC when he honoured an invitation for questioning on Monday, May 9, 2016. While in detention, Chief Fani-Kayode was attacked by a Muslim extremist operative, Sulaimon Kabiru, for reading his Bible.
An Evangelical Christian, he described his experience at the EFCC detention camp as the “worst experience of his life”, in an early Facebook update.
“This was the worst experience of my life but God was with me all the way.I suffered immeasurably but I count it all as joy. I am innocent of all charges and I look forward to defending myself vigorously in court,” he wrote.
Fani-Kayode maintained his innocence and his resolve to fight the charges of money laundering over the PDP campaign funds which were given to him to run the media and publicity of the Goodluck Jonathan PResidential Campaign of 2015.
“These charges are politically motivated and I have been severely punished for my political views and criticisms of the government. They are trying to silence me, break me, discredit me and destroy, but as long as Jesus is on the throne this will never work. I am strong and I am bold and the struggle will continue.”
“Free last: thanks be to God. 67 days in detention but still standing strong. The struggle continues. Thanks for the prayers and support,”
“Who can battle with the Lord? Who can battle with the Lord? Who can battle with the Lord? I say nobody!”
