Sealing Up of Sun Newspaper by EFCC Is A Travesty of Justice – Femi Fani-Kayode

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has described the sealing up of Sun Newspaper headquarters in Apapa, Lagos by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as a shameful act, a travesty of justice and a perversion of decency.

Fani-Kayode, who is a staunch critic of the ruling government in a series of tweets lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari, saying he has again displayed “his utter contempt for human rights, civil liberties and the rule of law.”

It could be recalled that the anti-graft agency stormed the headquarter of the newspaper with a seal notice telling those in the building to start packing up as they will come back to seal the building totally.

The act has gotten condemnation from different quarters due to the affiliation of the newspaper to former Abia Governor, Orji Uzor Kalu who recently bag twelve years in jail for an alleged fraud of N7.3bn and his company was ordered to be forfeited to the Federal Government.
