How suspected Boko Haram members protected me in prison - Fani-Kayode | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

A former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, says he was protected by Boko Haram suspects during his four-day detention at Kuje Prison.



Fani-Kayode said this in an article titled, ‘Head bloodied but not bowed and the ascension of President-Elect Donald Trump’ on Wednesday.

The ex-minister said he spent over two weeks in the underground cell of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission without being interrogated.

He said he was then transferred to Kuje Prison where he was kept in a cell along with terrorists.

Fani-Kayode said, “At Kuje I was kept in the terrorist wing of the prison which was built by the British government specifically for Boko Haram convicts and suspects. There were 47 of them in the facility and I was with them throughout. These were tough, disciplined, hardened, surprisingly well-educated and intimidating men.

“This was a frightful place and those that were locked up there were very dangerous and frightful people yet thankfully the Lord went ahead of me.

“The single cells, though small, were clean, well-ventilated, dry and very neat. The inmates were surprisingly very kind and friendly towards me and turned out to be my best friends and bodyguards whenever I toured the other parts of the prison.

“Most of those men were not Boko Haram killers but had been falsely accused, tortured and just dumped into prison and I felt nothing but pain and sorrow when I heard their stories.”

Fani-Kayode said during his time at the prison, he met with the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, who has been in detention for over a year.

He said they spoke for about three hours and they were protected by inmates during the meeting.

The ex-minister added, “When I went to visit the great and brilliant freedom fighter, Nnamdi Kanu, who is the leader of IPOB and easily the most courageous, powerful and credible Igbo leader in Nigeria today in his cell we had a very instructive and long discussion.

“I had never met Nnamdi before and I was amazed at his depth of knowledge, his immense courage and his deep convictions. There is no doubt in my mind that that man is going places and in him the Igbo have an Ojukwu and a Nnamdi Azikiwe all rolled into one. He is destined for greatness.

“My Boko Haram friends accompanied me to that meeting, drew a 10-man security cordon around me when we entered the general population of the prison and waited outside as Nnamdi and I spoke for almost three hours.”

  8. Frustration and desperation is leading FFK into insanity . Now he is assuming that EFCC detention facilities are now DSS detention cell and Abuja maximum prison cells combined. He wants everyone to believe his lies and narratives that it is the inmates who are in charge of prison activities and it's the prisoners who determines who to see or not. This man is an unrepentant Lair and will easily use anyone to achieve his mischievous aims. Now the Boko Haram detainees and Biafra /ipob leaders that are now his friends and allies (these were the same people he castigated before joining the GEJ train and even abused the late Biafra leader's wife Mrs Bianca Ojukwu as one of his numerous Igbo mistresses).
    Anyone taking Fani Kayode serious is a fool and needs psychiatric help.

    FFK should face his trial like a man and stop diverting attention from the main issue he's having with the Nigerian Government.
