Wife of Femi Fani-Kayode, Sonia Precious Chikwendu has spoken out following her detention along her 8 month son, Aragorn at a bann in Ekiti state, before they were “released by the governor of the state, Ayo Fayose.
In the statement, released via her Twitter handle, Sonia said;
All along I’ve been mute in the face of tyranny and political madness dished out on my husband Femi Fani-Kayode and family from this government and EFCC because it’s not my fight to lead but this stops today as I am getting in the ring as well. Since 3/5/2016 I’ve been in your custody and in all your stupid investigations I was not accused till today?
Haba mbok fear God! You had my husband in your custody and in all your stupid investigations I was not accused till today?
Haba mbok fear God! This account was opened in 2005 while I was in the university and has been dormant from 2013 till early last month when I had to activate it because you froze my other accounts with no explanations or invitation, yet this account holds nothing but 200k.
So because of 200k my son Aragorn and I were subjected to detention in a bank with the police and efcc waiting like sharks.
Thank God for Gov. Fayose and the people of Ekiti because if they had not been there they would have bundled me and my son like animals and subjected us to God knows what. Had it not been for them there would have been no word out on this matter.
What a shame!! This government and EFCC are shameless to bring in women and children to the ring of their vendettas and fights. I’m not a politician or a contractor. I’m the apple of God’s eyes so underrate me at your peril. Meanwhile I’m here and as strong as titanium.
She also reacted to the allegations from the EFCC that Fani-Kayode operated 17 accounts in Nigeria and that she had over N2 million in her account.
