Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose on Tuesday, paid a surprise visit to the detained former Minister of Aviation and the Director of the defunct Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) office in Abuja.

Fayose, who spoke with journalists after the visit, condemned the continued detention of Fani-Kayode despite the fact that he had earlier been granted bail by the court, saying that the action of the EFCC was vendetta.

Governor Fayose however disclosed that Fani-Kayode was in the good spirit when he met him but declared that he could not attest to "how the state of his accommodation is" as they only met inside an office within the EFCC.

He called on the Federal Government and the EFCC to stop playing god and allow the former minister to enjoy the bail earlier granted to him by the court.

According to Fayose, "the continued detention of the former minister was to demoralise him but unfortunately, the man was in high spirit when I met him. He is not worried, after all, a man must be brave. We shared prayers together that this persecution will come to pass and it will surely come to pass".

Speaking On his mission to the Commission, said: "I am here to visit and identify my friend, Chief Fani-Kayode. I came into Abuja yesterday and I am being my brother's keeper, and I felt that within the 24 hours that I will spend in Abuja I have to visit him

"I met him in an office. They brought him in to an office to see me. He is in good spirit. But when you said the state he was when I met him, there are two different issues. If you say state of mind, he is in good spirit. But I don't have access to where he sleeps and the condition in which he is kept but speaking with, he is in good spirit.

The governor hinted that former Minister would be charged to court on November 10.

He said: "It is obvious that the commission has made up their mind on charge him on the November 10. And it shows that they have made up their mind even before I visited him. He has been granted bail before and I would have expected them to allow him to go and come back since he didn't run away. So I just believe that this over zealousness will cease and get better."

Speaking on his 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."
