A personnel of the Nigerian Police, identified as Sunday Japhet, has been arrested by the Yobe State Police Command for allegedly accusing President Muhammadu Buhari, and his Vice, Yemi Osinbajo of failures.
Japhet, a Mobile Policeman had on August 9, taken to his Facebook page to dish out the attack on Buhari’s government.
In the post, Mr. Japhet bemoaned the level of corruption under Buhari, “a president who wants to fight corruption and tackle insecurities, with the vice who claimed to be a man of God without truth.”
Japhet, who did not spare his boss, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) in his attack, described Nigeria as a “great country led by evil men.”
The Facebook post read:
“This is Nigeria, with a president who want to fight corruption and tackle insecurities, with the vice who claimed to be a man of God without truth, with many elected senators, with IGP that we think things will change, its a pity for them, those that lead this country, I pray that this demonstration that is going to happen on 14 /8 in Maiduguri, Yobe, Adamawa and other places that mobile police on special duty are going to hold for their allowances be the beginning of something in this great country led by evil men, we are inviting all the media to be there for us, this people call their self leaders are all aware that this money use to be in some people joint account to get interest,then after 3-4 month they pay, no one will say he don’t know what is happening that this money is not paid, God will come down himself to help Nigerian if really this is buhari handling this country this way,i better die for truth then to be, seeing nonsense”. (Sic)
Though Yobe state Commissioner of Police, Sunmonu Adeyemi Abdulmaliki, has confirmed Mr. Japhet’s arrest, he however did not give details on the matter.
