EFCC Detains Fani-Kayode’s Wife, 8 Months Son

EFCC Detains Fani-Kayode’s Wife, 8 Months Son
Fani-Kayode’s wife, Precious Chikwendu was detained for over three hours with her eight months old baby, Aragorn in Access Bank, Ajilosun Branch, AdoEkiti on Monday.
Fani-Kayode’s wife was reportedly at the bank to withdraw money from her personal account, which is said to have about N200,000.
She was said to have been detained in the bank on the order of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
It took the intervention of the Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, who was said to have stormed the bank to free the woman, while the EFCC officials that would have whisked her away were still being expected.
Gov Fayose was seen visibly angry and was said to have driven himself to the bank.
His spokesman, Lere Olayinka posted on his Facebook Timeline that “Even when her eight months old baby was crying for food and water, she was held captive,”
In his reaction, Fani-Kayode said: “This government is sick and cowardly and so are the EFCC. If you have a problem with me face me and leave my family alone.
“My wife travelled to Ado Ekiti to see my friend and brother, Governor Fayose and his family.
“They were on their way out of town when they went to Access Bank in Ado Ekiti to get some money.
“When they got there my eight months old son Aragorn and wife Precious Chikwendu were illegally detained, brutalised and put under arrest on the orders of the EFCC at a bank in Ado Ekiti today.
“She has never had any business with me, she has never been formally invited by the EFCC or asked any questions about her transactions and
neither have they written to her on any issue even though they are always sending letters to my house and sending people there.
“If Buhari wants to deal with me why doesnt he face me like a man instead of trying to harm and hurt my eight month old son and wife.
“Had it not been for the intervention of Governor Ayo Fayose they would have taken them away and subjected them to all manners of harm and indignities simply because she is married to me.
“This was an account that has 200,000 naira in it and that has never had more than 500,000.
“She has operated it since 2005 and she stopped using it in 2013. The account has no connection with me and I did not know it existed till today.
“In an attempt to starve and harass me and my family all my accounts and wifes accounts have been frozen.
“Now they are resorting to arresting peoples’ wives and children for no just cause.
“I thank God for Gov. Fayose and the people of Ado Ekiti who stormed the bank and freed my wife from this illegal detention and attempt to kidnap them.
“This is Buhari’s Nigeria and we will resist his wickedness and tyranny.
“We intend to sue the bank and to sue the EFCC for this illegal and wicked action. They have no right to do this.
“If they want to see my wife all they need to do is to invite her. We have nothing to fear. They do not need to be so primitive and barbaric to people.”
Asked about her ordeal, Mrs. Fani- Kayode said she was treated badly by officials of the bank while her child was denied food.
“I’m not a politician and that account had been dormant for about five years. I only activated it last month in Port Harcourt.”
 “I decided to go to Access Bank to make some withdrawals when I was detained on the instruction of the EFCC.”
“They told me the account had been frozen and they were asked by the EFCC to arrest me on the spot.”
