Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has said he was protected by Boko Haram suspects, during the four days he spent in detention at Kuje Prison.
He revealed this in his latest article titled ‘Head bloodies but now bowed and the ascension of President-Elect Donald Trump’.
Fani-Kayode also said he spent over two weeks in the underground cell of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), without any interrogation.
He recalled that he was later transferred to Kuje Prison, where he was kept with terrorists.
Fani-Kayode said: “At Kuje I was kept in the terrorist wing of the prison which was built by the British government specifically for Boko Haram convicts and suspects.
“There were 47 of them in the facility and I was with them throughout. These were tough, disciplined, hardened, surprisingly well-educated and intimidating men.
“This was a frightful place and those that were locked up there were very dangerous and frightful people yet thankfully the Lord went ahead of me.
“The single cells, though small, were clean, well-ventilated, dry and very neat. The inmates were surprisingly very kind and friendly towards me and turned out to be my best friends and bodyguards whenever I toured the other parts of the prison.
“Most of those men were not Boko Haram killers but had been falsely accused, tortured and just dumped into prison and I felt nothing but pain and sorrow when I heard their stories.”
FaniKayode recently regained freedom from the EFCC’s den, over allegations of N26 million money laundering charges.
