Kassim Afegbua, spokesperson to former millitary President, Ibrahim Babangida has turned himself in this morning at the Force Headquarters, two days after he was declared wanted by the police.
Just Yesterday, following the controversial statements released over the coming 2019 elections; Afegbua sued the Nigerian police force of 1billion Naira over claims that he wasn’t formally invited for questioning before they threatened to arrest him.

The police accuse Mr. Afegbua of distributing a false statement on behalf of former military ruler, Ibrahim Babangida.

The statement criticised President Muhammadu Buhari and canvassed a young leadership for the country.

The police said the statement is inciting, but did not say which part of it was contentious.

Mr. Afegbua maintains no wrongdoing. The declaration by the police has been condemned by rights groups and lawyers.
