The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has frowned on Monday’s  detention of the wife of former spokesperson of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organization, Mrs. Precious Chikwendu  Fani-Kayode, by operatives of the Economic & Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The party said that it has  advised the family to approach the courts and enforce their legal rights in the  matter.

Fani-Koyide’s wife has also reacted to the explanation given by the anti-graft agency regarding the incident, describing it as a bare-faced lie.

The  wife of the PDP’s chieftain had gone to the Access Bank branch in Ado-Ekiti  to make a transaction shortly after visiting the Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose, when she was detained by the EFCC.

In a statement issued  on Tuesday by the Acting  National Publicity Secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, the party said the action of the EFCC represents a new low in the Federal Government’s resolve to harass and persecute perceived enemies.
