Fani-Kayode ‘dares authorities to arrest’ Afenifere leader, Adebanjo for not recognising Buhari
Femi Fani-Kayode, former Minister of Aviation, warned against the arrest of a leader of the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, Ayo Adebanjo, for not recognizing President Muhammadu Buhari as winner of the presidential election.
Adebanjo raised the alarm of his arrest after saying he will not recognize the Buhari government until the Supreme Court issues a final verdict.
Adebanjo, in an interview, described the 2019 presidential election as a joke, saying he could not recognize Buhari, who was declared the winner of the election, as elected president.
However, the National Democratic Front (NDF) called for immediate arrest and the appearance of Adebanjo.
The group claimed that Adebanjo’s comment amounted to treason and statements capable of plunging the country into another civil war.
Reacting, Fani-Kayode in a tweet wrote: “The threat to arrest 90 year-old Baba Ayo Adebanjo simply because he said that he refuses to recognise @MBuhari’s mandate unless he wins at the Supreme Court is nonsensical and childish.
“I dare them to go ahead. I doubt that Baba will loose any sleep over such an absurd threat.”
