Fatoke Abiodun, was yesterday sentenced to three years imprisonment for drug trafficking at the Federal High Court, Lagos. The 62-year-old Abiodun was a guitarist with King Sunny Ade, Nigeria's foremost musician.
Abiodun who has three wives and 12 children was apprehended by
operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency on January 1st,
2013, at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos while
attempting to board an Air France flight to Italy.
He however blamed poverty for this;
“My music career is a sad story. I played for King Sunny Ade for 30
years before I was unceremoniously retired in 2
007 without severance
benefit. I was unprepared for it and I saw the bitter side of life. This
is my first time of trafficking drugs. I did it out of frustration
because at my age, I could not provide for my family.”
This is so sad ,but 3 wives and 12 children ,the man na Denizien ,is really sad.
