Alleged Fraud: Femi Fani-Kayode Defends Abba Kyari Again… See What He Wrote
In a post on Sunday, Kayode made a case for the embattled senior police officer, Abba Kyari..
A former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has continued to defend indicted police officer, Abba Kyari insisting this time for due process to be followed.
In a post on Sunday, Kayode argued that since many people are rooting for due process to be done in the case of agitators like Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu, the same measure of due process should be extended to Kyari.
We have insisted on due process and the presentation of hard evidence before my friend and brother Sunday Igboho can be extradited from Cotonou to Nigeria.
We have condemned the illegal manner in which the Kenyan authorities kidnapped Nnamdi Kanu and returned him to Nigeria.
Those that are complaining about us asking for due process and insisting on the presentation of hard evidence before a court of law before Abba Kyari can be extradicted to America are myopic and naive.
You cannot insist on due process for Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu and deny it to Abba Kyari.
You cannot be selective in your application of justice.
You cannot have it both ways: you either believe in the rule of law or you do not. You either believe in due process, fairness, equity and justice or you do not.
We stood up for Allen Onyeama of Air Peace when the Americans wanted his head. In the end he was vindicated as there was no hard evidence against him and we discovered that the whole thing was a conspiracy to destroy him and take over his business.
Why should we not accord Abba the same benefit of the doubt or protection given the fact that he is also a Nigerian. Or is it that some Nigerians are more equal than others?
The fact that Abba is a policeman or a northern Muslim does not mean we should feed him to the dogs. The fact that he was in SARS does not mean we should crucify him.
Resigning our sovereignty to the Americans & acting as if they are God by considering one of our own guilty simply because they have indicted him or wish to investigate him is utterly shameful.
I accord the same presumption of innocence unless & until proven guilty by a court of law to Abba as I do to Sunday and Nnamdi.
I refuse to apply the rules & the law selectively. I refuse to allow my emotions to becloud my better judgement.
I refuse to associate myself with any witch hunt or to be infected by a herd & lynch mob mentality.
This is because I have been a victim of such myself many times in the past and I know what it is like.
We are all equal before the law & we must not apply it selectively or on a regional, religious or ethnic basis.
