The former minister of Aviation and chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has condemned the alleged arrest and brutalization of the party’s leaders by security agents ahead of Saturday’s (tommorow) governorship and state House of Assembly election in the state.
Fani-Kayode who described the invasion of the home and arrest of the Rivers State Commissioner of Education by soldiers as utter shameful, made the condemnation on Friday when he took his twitter handle @realFFK.
The former minister, who said he was outraged after watching the video of the invasion, alleged that he learnt that, that is what is going on all over Rivers State.
According to him, using soldiers to intimidate and terrorise the opposition in Awka Ibom, Rivers, Kaduna and elsewhere due to elections is barbaric.
In the two different tweets Fani-Kayode said:
“The invasion of the home and arrest of the Rivers State Commissioner of Education by soldiers led by one Major Mustapha is utterly shameful. I watched the video and I am outraged. I gather that this is what is going on all over Rivers state and that many PDP leaders have been…
…arrested by security agents whilst others have been brutalised and killed. This is unacceptable. I join millions of other Nigerians in condemning it. Using soldiers to intimidate and terrorise the oppostion in Akwa Ibom, Rivers, Kaduna and elsewhere due to elections is barbaric.”
