Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has warned against arresting a leader of the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, Ayo Adebanjo for failing to recognize President Muhammadu Buhari as the winner of the presidential election.
Naija News recalls Adebanjo had said he would not recognize Buhari’s government until the Supreme court gives it’s the final ruling.
This he said in an interview, after describing the 2019 presidential election as a joke.
However, the National Democratic Front (NDF), called for the immediate arrest and arraignment of Adebanjo.
The group opined that Adebanjo’s comment could be seen as treason who to start 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 recognize @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.”
