Former Presidential New Media aide Reno Omokri has accused the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari of trying to cripple former Vice President Atiku Abubakar before Saturday’s presidential election.
The former presidential aide wondered why EFCC would arrest Giwa-Osagie with 25 heavily armed policemen.
Omokri wrote: “The EFCC today arrested Atiku’s lawyer, Uyiekpen Giwa-Osagie with 25 heavily armed policemen. Is this why they postponed the election and implemented their #CoupAgainstNigeria?
“Their plan is to go after those around Atiku to see if they can cripple him before Saturday.
“The EFCC did not need 25 armed men. They detained Atiku’s lawyer, Uyi Giwa-Osagie, for 9 hours in his office. He is a respectable lawyer. Is it a crime to be Atiku’s lawyer? PMB should save his armed men for death squad of #SnatchAtYourOwnRisk and leave Atiku alone!
“The EFCC should tell Nigerians why they have arrested Atiku’s lawyer? What is his crime? Who is next? Is it Atiku’s wives or his children? Is Atiku now the public enemy? Is that why Buhari instigated the election postponement #CoupAgainstNigeria? Why is PMB so desperate?”
