Following the abduction of Afenifere Chieftain, Chief Olu Falae by unknown gunmen yesterday, Femi Fani Kayode has threatened that there will be consequences if the Federal government does not ensure his return.
Yesterday, Chief Falae’s abductors reportedly demanded a ransom of 100 million. Former head of the media of the Goodluck Jonathan campaign organisation, Femi Fani Kayode issued a statement yesterday.
“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.
“We cannot sit by idly and watch our leaders and elders being endangered, shamed and humiliated in this way. It is the governments job to keep us all safe and secure and they are failing in that duty.
“I call on the President and our security agencies to effect the expeditious and immediate release of Chief Olu Falae. 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,”
