Chief Femi Fani-Kayode free to roam outside prison walls, after sixty-seven days of incarceration.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Friday released the former spokesperson of ex- President Goodluck Jonathan, after fulfilling his bail conditions.

In a statement posted on his Facebook yesterday, Chief Fani- Kayode said he would not be broken, and described his detention and trial as politically motivated.

While expressing thanks to all those who stood by him in his trying times, he reiterated his innocence and expressed his readiness to stand trial and vigorously defend himself.

“I give thanks to God that I am free after 67 days in detention. I thank my wife, lawyers, children and friends for all their support. This was the worst experience of my life, but God was with me all the way.

“I suffered immeasurably, but I count it all as joy. I am innocent of all charges and I look forward to defending myself vigorously in court.

“These charges are politically motivated and I have been severely punished for my political views and criticisms of the government. They are trying to silence me, break me, discredit me and destroy, but as long as Jesus is on the throne this will never work. I am strong and I am bold and the struggle will continue.”
