July 1st, 2016 – FFK, Chief Femi Fani Kayode Denied Bail: Ex-Aviation Boss To Stay In Ikoyi Prison Till Monday

Two ex-ministers and directors of Media and Finance respectively of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Campaign Organisation in the 2015 general election, Femi Fani-Kayode and Nenadi Usman are to remain in prison till Monday July 4, 2016 as a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos on Friday reserved ruling on their bail applications.

Fani-Kayode and Usman alongside Danjuma Yusuf and Jointrust Dimensions Nigeria Limited were on June 28 arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission before Justice M. S. Hassan on a 17-count charge bordering on conspiracy, stealing, corruption and making cash payments exceeding the amount authorized by law. The accused persons are alleged to have diverted about N4.9 billion belonging to the Federal Government of Nigeria for political and personal uses.

They had pleaded not guilty. Consequently, their counsel, Ferdinand Orbih, SAN, Ifedayo Adedipe (SAN) and S. I. Ameh (SAN) moved the motion for bail, having filed separate applications in which they prayed the court to release their clients on bail.

But the prosecuting counsel Rotimi Oyedepo said he needed time to respond to the applications. Justice Hassan consequently adjourned proceedings to July for hearing of the bail applications.

At the resumed hearing today, counsel to the defendants (Ferdinand Orbih, SAN, Ifedayo Adedipe (SAN) and C. I. Ndukwe) argued the applications.

Orbih (SAN) prayed the court to admit the first accused person to bail based on self recognition pending the hearing and determination of the charges preferred against her. He also prayed the court to grant her bail on very liberal terms. Adedipe (SAN), and Ndukwe aligned themselves with Orbih.

Prosecution counsel, Nkereuwem Mark Anana opposed the applications. However, he stated that where the court decides to exercise its discretion in favour of the defendants, it should impose conditions that will compel them to attend trial.

Justice Hassan consequently adjourned to July 4, 2016 for ruling.

  1. Chelf Femi Fani Kayode and host of other criminals, crooks, and looters that have used their political positions and other appointments to cheat on suffering Nigerian people should be permanently denied bail from prisons. Our nation is in serous mess and economy hardship today because of looting and corruption of vagabonds in powe for overy 40 years. Anyone who is found guilty with evidence of being a partakers in the looting of our national treasure to bankruptcy within six years of president Jonathan should be reminded in prisons to serve his or her prison term. There should be no pity or neliency for the enemies of our nation that destroyed Nigeria for personal wealth and gain. In countries like China, Iran, Kuwait, and North Korea people like Fani Kayode, Fayose, Jonathan, IBB, Metu, Dansuki, Raymond Dopesi, and other looters would have been executed by firing squad or death by hanging for rendering Nigeria useless, unproductive, and backward. Shame on them all.

  2. Never believed Mr Fani-Kayode could be this remorseful going by his lousy life style.The judge may reject his bail application.Hope his baby mama would move in with him now in prison to show solidarity,love and support for her baby papa?

  3. How I wish the prison is like a local cell, where they won’t even find a seat to sit or tile to rest their legs. Yeye people

  4. FFK, suddenly became a remorseful soul. I have bn execpting him to release an album all this while.

ORDINARY NEPA LIGHT CANNOT BE PROVIDED FOR NIGERIANS .WE AGREE THEY ARE THIEVES AND LOOTERS , WHY STILL KEEPING THIEVES AND LOOTERS IN GOVT JUST BCOS YOU WANT TO COMPENSATE THEM ?AMNOT INTERESTED IN THEIR PUNISHMENT . WHAT I PREFER IS LET THEM BRING OUT D MONEY , USE DIS MONEY TO BETTER D LIVES OF NIGERIANS , PROVIDE STEADY LIGHT , GUD -HEALTH CONDITIONS WHERE EVEN WITHOUT MONEY , AN URGENT AND IMPORTANT MEDICAL ATTENTION CAN BE RENDERED TO D NEEDY .EMPLOY PEOPLE LIKE SENATOR BEN MURRAY BRUCE TO PLAN A BETTER NIGRIA FOR D COMMON MAN WITH LITTLE MONEY BUT PLENTY COMMON SENSE .
