“Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode (FFK), you are a joker… Instead of being prayerful and hopeful for a statesman’s life, you are making threats against our government… Please!”
Recall that following Monday’s abduction of Chief Falae from his farm, in Ilado village, Akure North area of Ondo state, by suspected Fulani herdsmen numbering over 20, Fani-Kayode had condemned the abduction in a statement, calling on the Federal Government and security agencies to as a matter of urgency fish out perpetrators of the act.
The statement of Fani-Kayode read in part: “The abduction of Chief Olu Falae is not only unacceptable but it also an exceptionally dangerous development. I say this because he is not only an elder-statesman of our country but he is also one of the most revered leaders of Afenifere and the south-west.
“They must rescue him from these vagabonds and vandals as soon as possible before things get out of hand. Let it be clearly understood that if anything happens to him and if he doesn’t come home hale and hearty we will hold the Federal Government responsible and there will be consequences. Those that are in power would do well to take what I have said very seriously.”
