While commenting on the ruling of a Federal High Court, Governor Ayo Fayose insinuated that President Muhammadu Buhari, is responsible for the deaths of late Yoruba leader, Obafemi Awolowo and former Bayelsa Governor, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha.
Reacting to the High Court’s ruling that former National Security Adviser, should be allowed to travel abroad for medical treatment, Fayose made a most serious allegation against the President.
Speaking on Friday through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor said:
“The Department of State Services (DSS) placement of the former NSA under house arrest despite court order that his international passport be released so that he can travel abroad for medical treatment is wicked, inhuman, dictatorial and a clear attempt to deny him of his rights to life as enshrined in the Constitution of Nigeria.”
“Nigerians, especially men of the judiciary must join hands to shake dictatorship off the body of President Buhari and his hatchet man, Alhaji Lawal Daura.”
“Nigerians, who fought late General Sanni Abacha to a standstill will fight this emerging Buhari’s ‘militocracy,’ which is a clear threat to our hard-earned democracy.”
“President Buhari seized late Chief Obafemi Awolowo international passport and prevented him from travelling abroad for medicare in 1985, thereby leading to his (Awolowo) untimely death of 1987.
“Buhari also hounded former Bayelsa State Governor, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha to death all in the name of fighting perceived political opponents.
“Therefore, it has become necessary to raise the alarm that nothing must happen to Dasuki.
“The fate that befell Awolowo in 1985 must not be allowed to befall Sambo Dasuki in 2015 and Nigerians must rise against this Buhari’s dictatorship and his instrument of oppression, Lawal Daura.”
