Former Military Head
of State, Ibrahim Badamosi
Babangida, has wondered
why the Police declared his
spokesman, Kassim Afegbua,
wanted over a statement he
authorised him to send out.
Afegbua revealed this to
newsmen when he reported
at the Police Headquarters
yesterday morning, in
company of his wife, lawyer
and friends.
The Inspector-General of
Police, IGP, Ibrahim Idris,
had on Monday ordered
Afegbua’s arrest over a
statement he issued on
behalf of Babangida, urging
President Muhammadu
Buhari not to seek re-election
in 2019.
The ex-president’s media
aide said when he was
declared wanted by the police,
Babangida called him and
asked if he was a criminal.
“It will even interest you
to know that when I was
declared wanted on Channels
TV and the Nigerian
Television Authority, NTA,
my boss; IBB was the one who
called me and said ‘why are
they declaring you wanted?
Are you a criminal? And we
laughed over it.
“He also asked if I was on
the run and if I have been
given an invitation and he
said, okay that is interesting.
My boss said he heard on the
news that they talked about
defamation of character and
he asked whose character
have you defamed?’’
