An investigation has been launched into a leaked audio which suggested that the convener of the ‘Our Mumu Don Do’ coalition group, Charles Chukwuemeka Oputa ‘Charly Boy’ collected bribe from the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
The move was made known by the ‘OurMumuDonDO’ movement which said it will now commence a formal inquiry into the body of allegations that have been made public in recent days.
Leaked last night, the viral audio suggested Charly Boy acknowledged he collected money from Festus Keyamo, spokesperson of President Muhammadu Buhari Presidential Campaign Organisation in the 2019 presidential election as bribe to keep the group quiet for the time being.
Reacting to the leaked audio which has put the group in bad light, the National Secretary of the movement, Adebayo Raphael, in a statement apologised for the ‘bad press’ and vowed to get to the root of the matter in due course.
“Fellow Nigerians, I wish to say that it has become extremely important that I react to the sordid developments that have recently emerged in the OurMumuDonDo Movement,” read the statement.
“Firstly, I must confess that I am utterly disappointed by the audio recording that went viral between last night and this morning, of a conversation between the present Chairman of the group; Mr. Charles Oputa, and a former member, Mr. Deji Adeyanju, where the former is alleged to have confessed to his dealings with the regime of General Muhammad Buhari and the APC while the latter was languishing in Kano Central Prisons.
“It is with a heavy and pertinent heart that I offer an unreserved apology, on behalf of myself and the other members of the OurMumuDonDo Movement, to the Nigerian people who we have hitherto proclaimed to represent in all our actions and activities as a pressure group for the last three years. My sincere hope is that you all will view this development as a necessary event needed to sanitise our civic space and reinvigorate our collective commitment to the struggle for social change.
“Secondly, I must inform the general public that the OurMumuDonDo Movement will now commence a formal inquiry into the body of allegations that have been made public in recent days, and the most appropriate decision will be determined by the Board of Trustees in line with the group’s constitution.

“In conclusion, I would like to emphasise that the purpose for which OurMumuDonDo Movement was founded has not changed. If there are black sheep in the group, working against the group’s objectives, we will find out and deal with them accordingly. Thank You.”
Deji Adeyanju has also denied leaking the audio recording implicating his former partner, CharlyBoy in a Twitter post saying; ‘I don’t know how the audio recording got out because I shared it with a few persons in confidence’.
He also went on to Tweet, ‘I’m down. I’m affected badly. I will be seeing a psychologist to get myself back on track. On the verge of completely giving up on the country. There seems to be no hope for Nigeria”.
While announcing his resignation from the Our Mumu Don Do campaign, Adeyanju who recently regained freedom after spending 78-days in detention, alleged that Charly Boy had been compromised by ‘oppressors’ while he was in detention.
Adeyanju resigned his membership from the movement in a post on his Twitter page when he wrote thus; “Dear Nigerians, I have resigned my membership of Our Mumu Don Do.
”I no longer have confidence in the leader of the movement, Charly Boy. He betrayed the cause while I was away in prison and compromised with the oppressors. Thank you.”
OurMumuDonDo movement is a national reawakening and social movement that is focused on mobilising Nigerians, especially young men and women to effectuate a social change in Nigeria headed by Charly Boy.
Recall also that Adeyanju alongside Charly Boy were at the forefront of the #ResumeOrResign protest calling for the resignation or return of President Muhammadu Buhari while he was still receiving medical attention in London in the year 2017.
