I am not afraid of probe or arrest – Obasanjo

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Sunday, told the President Muhammadu Buhari government that he was not scared of arrest.

He vowed to continue to speak against the All Progressives Congress (APC) despite the “intimidation”.

In a lengthy statement made available to DAILY POST by his media team on Sunday, Obasanjo said he also got information about cabal in the government and that former Lagos governor, Bola Tinubu, is the one now running Buhari’s re-election campaign.

probe or arrest

The statement titled “Points or concerns and actions” reads in part: “I have been threatened with arrest and extermination but I will not succumb to intimidation or threats.

“Maybe I should remind those who are using probe as a threat that I have been probed four times by EFCC, ICPC, House of Representatives and the Senate and Buhari has access to reports of these probes.

“But I have also challenged Buhari and the criminals around him to set up a probe on the same allegations and I will face such probe in public.

“But I know that these criminals cannot withstand a Police inquiry let alone clinical probe on the past public offices they held. My fervent prayer is that President Buhari may live to see the will and purpose of God for Nigeria.

“My final appeal to him is to desist from evil with manipulation and desperation because evil has repercussion especially as man who should watch and be mindful of his self-acclaimed and packaged integrity.

“At the end of the day, those who goad you on will leave you in the lurch. You will be left alone, naked and unheralded.

“In defeat, which must be Buhari’s fear leading to desperation, he and his co-travellers can still maintain modicum of decency, and exhibit fear of God in their actions.

“We have been told that governance has been abdicated to a cabal. Now, campaigning has been abdicated to ‘jagaban’.”
