A former Minister of Aviation, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode has described the raiding of the deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu’s residence as a plan to silence members of the opposition by the ruling party.
Fani-Kayode who confirmed the raid said Buhari’s administration is a government of fascists and beasts, adding that the sole agenda is to divide the country.
“This is shameful and shocking. Raiding the homes of our friends and leaders like Ekweremadu and harrasing their children will not deter, stop or silence those of us that are in the opposition. It will only harden our hearts and strengthen our resolve.
“As each day goes by more and more people have come to accept the fact that the Buhari administration is a government of FASCISTS and BEASTS.
They are led and guided by dark and sinister forces whose sole agenda is to divide our people and destroy our country.
“It is about time that Nigerians woke up and stood up to their madness and tyranny.
“We must employ all lawful means to resist them and expose them for what they are. Not only are they incompetent but they are also sadistic and wicked.
“Nowhere in the world do citizens sit by idly and say nothing when their rights are being violated in this way.”
The former Minister accused the Buhari led government of intimidating the people, illegally confining citizens like the former Chairman of the National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, the leader of the Shiites group, El Zakzaky, and Ifeanyi Uba who was arrested in connection with N11bn diversion
“The Federal Government is trying to foster and engender an atmosphere of fear and terror and this will not work because we refuse to be intimidated.
“You illegally and indefinitely lock up Sambo Dasuki, El Zak Zaky, Ifeanyi Uba and countless others and you criminalise them before the world.
“Worse still you refuse to bring them before the courts of law or to give their lawyers full and free access to them.
“You demonise opposition members and those that criticise your government whilst you treat your own party members and government officials as if they were angels and saints even when and where they indulge in monumental acts of depravity and corruption.
“Instead of protecting the lives Nigerians from the barbaric Fulani militias and herdsmen and other genocidal maniacs you are using the security forces to wage war against the opposition and the Nigerian people.
“We expected this sort of thing from the tyrant called President Buhari but we did not expect it from Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.
“He is an erudite lawyer and a gentleman of good stock and noble blood and he really should know better.
“My belief is that the Acting President may not have known about this barbaric raid and if that is the case I implore him to put a leash on his dogs and stop them from terrorising innocent Nigerians.
“Their behaviour is not only shameful but it is also uttterly reprehensible and let them be rest assured that their desperate attempt to dehumanise us and bring us to our knees will fail because God is with us.
“An attack on or the violation of the constitutional rights of Ekweremadu or any other opposition figure or dissenting voice in this nation is an attack on ALL of us.
“This sort of thing MUST stop because this is a democracy and not a military dictatorship.”
