Nigeria must Arrest and prosecute IBB, Obasanjo – Opadokun ( Do You Agree ?)

Former Secretary of the pan-Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, and Publicity Secretary of the National Democratic Coalition, Chief Ayo Opadokun, in this interview with LEKE BAIYEWU, explains the national mistakes in June 12 and the danger ex-military chiefs pose to Nigeria’s democratic system

Have you ever been worried that June 12, is being celebrated annually only in the South-West?
A significant number of those who have succeeded in capturing power – those who were military apologists, con-federates, sympathisers and friends – will not understand where the shoe is pinching ordinary Nigerians, since they did not participate in the various campaigns that the National Democratic Coalition established. They got into political offices through influence peddling and commercialisation of the Nigerian political landscape. They have failed to show a modicum of etiquette and attitude to those who made it possible for the restoration that took place in 1999.

Nigeria Police: Why We Can't Arrest Asari Dokubo

“I am not afraid of arrest. I am saying it bold and clear without mincing words, Nigeria will be history if I am arrested. I am daring them to arrest me if they can. If they don’t, they are cowards and shame on them.”
These were the words of Asari Dokubo, a militant leader, daring the police or anyone to arrest him for his threat to set Nigeria on fire if President Goodluck Jonathan is not elected in 2015.
The President, the police, the military, the SSS and others kept quiet in a move many believed to be due to the fact that Asari is close to the President and enjoys billions of Naira contract from him.
Anyway, the Police now have something to say. See their claims below...
Police Force spokesman, CSP Frank Mba said, “If we find anybody committing any offence, we will bring the full weight of the law on them. But, we will not go out of our way to get involved in chasing frivolities; we are not politicians, we are a law enforcement agency.

Statement On The Arrest And Detention Of LEADERSHIP Journalists

After 48 hours of nightmare, four journalists with LEADERSHIP who were detained by the police on the orders of President Goodluck Jonathan were released last night.
Two of them – Mr. Tony Amokeodo and Mr. Chibuzo Ukaibe – were, however, released conditionally: they have been asked to report at the police headquarters by 10am every day for undisclosed reasons.
We wish to restate that these conditions are obnoxious and unacceptable in any democratic society.
Our journalists do not work for the police and have no business reporting to the police headquarters while earning their pay at LEADERSHIP.
