Femi Fani Kayode cries out for freedom after meeting bail conditions

According to this press statement below, FFK remains in custody after
meeting the conditions to be released on bail. Read below;

The dictatorial, vengeful, vindictive and scurrilous use of the
Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) by the APC-led federal
government to achieve sinister purposes against vocal individuals and
members of the opposition has once again played itself out in the
macabre continued detention of Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, 5 days after
fulfilling all his bail conditions.
We are appalled by this risible development but not surprised at all
by it because that has been the hallmark of this current
administration. Rather than work to improve on its reprehensible
anti-democratic record, the Buhari-led administration has insisted on
continuing in its self-engineered free nose-dive into the abyss of
autocracy and the infamy of gross abuse of citizens' rights.
This tactic of keeping key and vocal members of the opposition out of
circulation without due regard to our laws and or harass them with
charges that cannot stand the test of judicial requirements has got to
stop. The sweet smelling savour of democracy will be polluted when the
opposition is stifled.
The continued holding of Chief Femi Fani-Kayode in EFCC custody for
this long despite meeting his bail conditions goes a long way to show
that this fight is not about corruption after all but all about
silencing the opposition.
We condemn in very strong terms these acts of intimidation and
harassment and request that he be released forthwith even as we call
on all well-meaning Nigerians to know who to hold responsible should
anything untoward happen to Chief Femi Fani-Kayode!
This act of executive rascality, at a time when Nigerians are groaning
more than ever before over the economic hardship inflicted on them by
this administration, is needless. It will achieve nothing but will
only lead to a puerile end.
Release FFK NOW!
