By Ayo Balogun – Lagos – The trio of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Vice President Atiku Abubakar and Lagos state Governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu have been accused of plotting against the incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration as well as installing in its place, an Interim National Government (ING).
Minister of Police Affairs, Jelili Adesiyan made the accusation Monday, in Lagos at the official launch of a book – Watch The Watcher authored by a public commentator, Yinka Odumakin.
Adesiyan who equally joined the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari (rted) disclosed in view of the plot, has directed the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Suleiman Abba and the State Security Service, (SSS), to commence the arrest of anyone that made inflammatory as well as inciting statements, as the country prepares for the 2015 general elections.
The controversial Police Affairs Minister insisted that the trio plot was ongoing, but guaranteed despite that, the coming elections would hold and pledged men of the Police would work with whoever that emerged the winner.
He also claimed that those guilty of making the inciting statements were opposition members, therefore had ordered the IGP and SSS to begin the arrest of subsequent culprits.
While making particular reference to recent Governor Rotimi Amaechi’s accusation of corruption in the country’s Military, Adesiyan attacked Obasanjo, saying he was both vindictive and dictatorial, which he indicated were the bane of his problem with President Jonathan.
He held that the former President was forced to team up with the opposition members, declaring that the ex – Head of State and others would fail and the alleged sinister plot would backfire.
Odumakin’s book is rebuttal to former President Obasanjo’s recently launched book – My Watch. He was a nominee of the Afenifere at the 2014 National Conference.
