Obasanjo crying wolf, he deserves to be behind bars , says former Army officer


A former Provost Marshal of the Nigerian Army, Ikponmwen Idada, faulted the alarm raised by former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, who alleged that Muhammadu Buhari, the President of Nigeria is plotting to silence him.

Speaking with Punh in Benin, on Saturday, Idada said, “ I know Obasanjo more than most Nigerians and Obasanjo is one man who deserves to be behind the bars. He is one of the greatest causes of our woes in this country.

“He does not see anything good in anybody . He believes that he alone is the messiah in Nigeria .

“A man like that should be kept off the scene, honestly. He is definitely crying wolf . Maybe he is aware of what he has done that is making these people ( Presidency) want to go after him .

The retired Army office , however, advised the Federal Government not to hesitate to prosecute anyone who had gone against the law and the aspiration of the citizens.

“Obasanjo is coming back in his same old ways – always wanting to produce a person of his choice and he will invariably turn back to condemn the same person. Why should Nigerians believe such a person , seriously ?”
