Atiku, PDP warns against arresting Obasanjo

- in News

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar have warned the All ‎Progressives Congress (APC) led government against arresting former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

The PDP in a statement on Friday night said it was shocked when the ex-President alarmed the nation of ‎government’s plot to arrest him on trumped up charges and detain him indefinitely.

The statement reads: “PDP says the revelation coming from a Nigerian of Chief Obasanjo’s status is terrifying as it has heightened the tension in the polity and confirmed our fears that our dear nation has descended into a police state where any Nigerian, who holds a divergent view to President Muhammudu Buhari’s 2019 re-election bid, becomes endangered.
