The Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose, Tuesday said the continued detention of the former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani Kayode by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), was an act of vendetta.

The governor questioned the rationale behind the former ministers continued detention since the EFCC has resolved to arraign him on November 10.
The governor hinted that former Minister would be charged to court on November 10. He said;
On concerns over recent spates of high profile visits to the anti-graft facility he said ” these people are only accused. An accused person are at liberty to be visited even people convicted are to be visited. They are human beings it is their right to be visited. “Are you saying that people should be locked away without access to family and friends that would be abuse to human rights. There is a difference between being accused and found guilty. After from that even if you are found guilty people still have a right to visit you.”
