The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris has reportedly ordered for the arrest of the media aide to former President Ibrahim Babangida, Prince Kassim Afegbua for the statement he issued on behalf of his boss.

He called on Nigerians to disregard the earlier statement by Afegbua.

The Presidency source, who does not want his name in print, said that the IGP has ordered for the arrest of Kassim Afegbua for issuing allegedly issuing a fake statement.

Afegbua was advised to submit himself to the force headquarters within 24 hours or face arrest.
The media aide has however insisted that he had the permission of the former president to issue the statement credited to him.

  1. Every morning I look at the headlines, I worry for Nigeria. What kind of abuse of powers is this? Can a leader not be criticized or told point blank truth anymore? Have we now become animals that we can’t exercise decorum in the affairs of man? Why do men choose to play ‘God’ in public office?
    This is not the country I want. Psycophancy everywhere you turn. What a shame. You can call for my arrest for giving my opinion. I won’t even claim anonymity.
