It had been reported that Ex-SGF was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on Wednesday.
Recall that Obasanjo recently sparked controversies after he sent a lengthy letter to Buhari advising him not to seek re-election in 2019 as he has failed Nigerians.
However, the group reacting in a series of tweet on its official twitter page said it was a ploy by Buhari’s government to divert Nigerians’ attention.
The tweet read “EFCC detains Babachir Lawal, this is desperation, after OBJ’s Letter. SHAME.
“Nigerians are not moved by the news of EFCC detaining Babachir Lawal the Grasscutter.
“We all know it’s a trick to divert attention from OBJ’s letter.
“Of course, they must have spoken and begged Babachir to allow them use him for the drama. We know these things, how e dey work.”
