RELEASE FEMI FANI KAYODE NOW OR CHARGE HIM TO COURT

Youths for Human Rights Protection and Transparency Initiative (YARPTI) has today called  on the Nigerian Government  to  released  Femi Fani Kayode or charge him to court. Kayode a former Minister and spokesman for the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation was arrested on May 9, 2016 for allegedly receiving N840m during the build-up to the 2015 presidential election. The anti-graft agency also froze his  bank account and seized his passport in the course of its investigations. Kayode has been in EFCC  detention for   50 days  now.

YARPTI hinted strongly that  the continued detention of Kayode  without  trial is a  violation of  his  fundamental human  rights.  Kenneth Uwadi , YARPTI’s  President  said “President  Buhari  is once again proving that he is not fighting corruption  but  is ruthlessly persecuting the opposition.”

Buhari must stop  persecution  and allow the voice of the opposition  to be heard in Nigeria . YARPTI  has urged the international community to publicly condemn human rights violations in Nigeria
