The Director, Media and Publicity of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has called for probe into the relationship between the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and violent groups.
The former aviation minister made the call in a statement in Abuja on January 9, 2015, Friday, following Buhari’s alleged endorsement by the Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND).
FFK said Buhari’s endorsement by MEND, a discredited militia group, should give Nigerians and the international community great concern, Punch reports.
According to Fani-Kayode, Buhari’s comments over insurgency in Nigeria were worrisome.
He added that it won’t be surprising if Boko Haram equally endorses him.

“It is important for Nigerians to take another look at Buhari’s comments about Boko Haram and the way he has encouraged Boko Haram group.
“It is on public record that Buhari had announced to the whole world that it was unfair and unjust for the Boko Haram to be tackled (after it) had killed over 20,000 innocent Nigerians, mostly women and children, after burning their homes and destroying their communities,” he said.
Fani-Kayode therefore called on Nigerians and the international community to investigate the relationship between Buhari and MEND as well as the deadly Boko Haram sect.
Femi Fani Kayode was formerly a member of the APC but later defected to the PDP. Since his defection, he has repeatedly attacked the main opposition force of Nigeria and the APC presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari. He said Buhari’s election would do more harm than good to the already troubled country.
