By Dipo Awojobi – A former Minister of Aviation and Spokesman of the defunct Goodluck Jonathan Presidential Campaign Organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has described his 67-day detention in prison as the worst experience of his life.
Mr. Fani-Kayode made this known in a statement by his media aide, Jude Ndukwe, insisting that his arraignment was aimed at breaking and discrediting him.
The former Aviation minister however vowed to defend himself over the charges against him.
“I give thanks to God that I am free after 67 days in detention. I thank my wife, lawyers, children and friends for all their support,” he said.
“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. 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.”
