Ude further declared that he is not in anyway afraid of the Vice President.
Recall that the blogger had accused Osinbajo of collecting N4 billion from Ibrahim Magu, the suspended acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
Following this development, Osinbajo had yesterday written the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, asking him to investigate allegations that he received N4 billion from Magu.
This was contained in a petition addressed to Adamu through Osinbajo’s lawyer, Taiwo Osipitan and dated July 8, 2020.
Further, the VP had instructed the IGP Adamu to initiate criminal proceedings against Jackson Ude if after the investigation is carried out, it turns out false.
Reacting, Ude declared that the police have no rights to arrest him, while insisting that Osinbajo must first resign from office before taking him to court.
Ude said since Osinbajo is denying the allegations, Magu’s confessions should be released verbatim by the Presidential panel investigating him.
Ude, a former Director of Strategy and Communications under President Goodluck Jonathan administration, Chief, tweeted, “Since Osinbajo, the Star Boy, is denying, let’s have lawyers compel the Presidential Panel investigating Magu and the Police, to release the verbatim transcripts of Magu’s confessions. This is not about waving immunity.
“I am not afraid of Osinbajo and his minions. If he indeed wants to go to court, he needs to resign first, and sue me. He cannot be VP and be using state resources to intimidate the Judiciary. He cannot wave an immunity that he didn’t place. Osinabjo should resign first!
“Osinbajo should have used the U.S Police, FBI or even the CIA to charge me for criminal defamation. Using the Nigerian Police is a waste of poor Nigerian taxpayers money. Except his aim is to arrest me in Nigeria, lock me up forever. Anyway, perhaps Na my ghost dem go arrest.”
