In a statement made available to newsmen yesterday, he noted it was wrong for the anti-graft agency to go after his wife or any other member of his family or any matter concerning him.

“If you have a problem with me face me and leave my family alone”, the statement quoted.

He noted that “My wife travelled to Ado Ekiti to see my friend and brother Governor Fayose and his family. They were on their way out of town when they went to Access Bank in Ado Ekiti to get some money.

“When they got there my eight-month-old son, Aragorn and wife Precious Chikwendu were illegally detained, brutalised and put under arrest on the orders of the EFCC at a bank in Ado Ekiti, yesterday.

It added that, “She has never had any business with me, she has never been formally invited by the EFCC or asked any questions about her transactions and neither have they written to her on any issue even though they are always sending letters to my house and sending people there.

“If Buhari wants to deal with me why doesnt he face me like a man instead of trying to harm and hurt my 8 month old son and wife.”

It further added that but for the intervention of Fayose “they would have been taken them away and subjected them to all manner of harm and indignities simply because she is married to me.”

The statement also informed that, “This was an account that has 200,000 naira in it and that has never had more than 500,000. She has operated it since 2005 and she stopped using it in 2013. The account has no connection with me and I did not know it existed till today.

  1. This is why we need BVN, no hiding place for any crook. If you subject your wife and 8 month old son to your ways then they will equally pay the price. Leave us out of this. When you collected money from Dasuki you did not run to the press to tell us they gave you stolen money.

He claimed, "I did not know it existed till today" but he was able to tell us the history of the account since 2005. Please use your brain man.
