Sunny Ade's guitarist sentenced to 3yrs in prison for drug trafficking

King Sunny Ade's ex-guitarist, Fatoke Abiodun, was yesterday May 14th sentenced to three years imprisonment at a Federal High Court in Lagos for drug trafficking.

The 62 year old veteran guitarist was arrested on Tuesday January 1st 2013 with 1.575kg of cocaine while trying to board an Air France flight to Italy at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos. The drug was discovered in the false bottom of his luggage during the screening of passengers to Italy. Fakoke pled guilty to one count of unlawful exportation of cocaine.

He played for King Sunny Ade for 30 years before he was unceremoniously retired in 2007.

Papa, its a shame but you just gotta do time, I just hope you don't pass out in there, how sad for a man your age to be in prison, how I wish you could turn back the hands of time and not agree to traffic drugs. How sad do I feel for you. Too bad! 3 years isn't too much though, take solace in that.

Another one falls victim of the lack of social welfare and decent pension scheme for nationals. It's a shame he had to resort to drug trafficking.

Was in court when he was been sentenced, really sad, I kept crying. He was really sorry for his offence, he kept shaking and had teary eyes. God pls help him for he has health related issues, Amen. On the other hand, he is very fortunate to have been given 3yrs.

After spending loads of money on xmas teh cheapest ticket i could get back to Edinburgh ws for 1st of Jan. I was waiting on queue for custom cheque when i saw the police come and took this man away . I had seen him earlier but i wouldnt have suspected him cos he was wearing a pastor attire and collar.. God have mercy on us. The custom guys did a great job to detect it after him we even spent longer on teh queue as tehy began looking even through peoples food stuff ..except of cos if you sort them ..lol...
