Former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has said that the government is trying to silence him.

Fani-Kayode made the comment via a statement released on July 18, 2016.

The statement reads:

“This was the worst experience of my life but God was with me all the way.I suffered immeasurably but I count it all as joy. I am innocent of all charges and I look forward to defending myself vigorously in court.

“These charges are politically motivated and I have been severely punished for my political views and criticisms of the government. They are trying to silence me, break me, discredit me and destroy, but as long as Jesus is on the throne this will never work. I am strong and I am bold and the struggle will continue.”
