Just In: Watch your mouth — UK tells Kayode over threats

The government of the United Kingdom has condemned former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode (FFK), for saying Nigeria will be ungovernable if the victory of President-elect Bola Tinubu is annulled.

Despite States Security Service (SSS) warning political actors from making inflammatory and inciting statements, Mr Fani-Kayode took to his Facebook page, threatening that the country will be ungovernable should Mr Tinubu’s victory be annulled. 

Ben Llewellyn-Jones, British deputy high commissioner to Nigeria, in an interview with Nigeria Info FM on Sunday, berated the APC for not dissociating itself from Mr Fani-Kayode’s inflammatory statements.

 “Yes, let’s be specific, there were some people, like Femi Fani-Kayode, what is he saying and why is he saying it? I don’t understand,” Mr Llewellyn-Jones said. 

“It is wrong from my perspective that he will speak on behalf of a party and that party does not distance itself from him and say stop doing that. It is wrong to say that.

“To me, it is really important, people who have said I am part of a party’s press and media campaign, well, the party itself should say no you are not, and you should stop and we do not agree. 

Mr Llewellyn-Jones said “we watched very closely. We have a list, we are working through our list but we don’t publish those names. I know people say we should, but we have laws, and the law prevents us from doing that,” he said.

“We said we will do this and we will do this. And we are gathering the kind of information that will enable us do this, on specific individuals. At the moment the list is between 5 and 10 and it is growing.”
