A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has tasked President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure the immediate release of Olu Falae, who was kidnapped on Monday by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
The former Jonathan Presidential Campaign spokesman, also warned that failure to get Mr. Falae released unhurt could attract dire consequences.
His statement which was made available to PREMIUM TIMES reads: “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.”
