Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, dared President Mohammadu Buhari to arrest former President Olisegun Obasanjo.
In a statement on Tuesday, the Former Minister cautioned Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore over its call for the arrest of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
The National Secretary of the group, Alhassan Saleh, had criticised the former President over his letter to President Muhammadu Buhari warning that the insecurity in the country could reach genocidal proportions.
Saleh had said, “The earlier they get him (Obasanjo) arrested and dealt with, according to the laws of the land, the better. He doesn’t mean well for the country.”
He described the call for the former President’s arrest as “reckless, irresponsible, dangerous and unacceptable.”
Fani-Kayode said, “I dare Buhari to go ahead and arrest Obasanjo and do your bidding. That is when you will know that even a madman has relatives. You are sitting on a time-bomb and playing with fire.”
The former minister stated that Obasanjo was attempting to save Nigeria from another civil war, adding that those who opposed the ex-President’s counsel failed to appreciate the fact that in the event of such a war, they would suffer more than anyone else.
