Breaking: Babangida’s Spokesman, Afegbua, Reports at Police Headquarters

Kassim Ajegbua, spokesman of former Military President, Ibrahim Babangida, has turned himself in to the police after being declared wanted.

This comes bare hours after Afegbua filed a fundamental rights suit against the Nigerian police and two media houses seeking the sum of N1bn in damages.

The embattled spokesman to the former military dictator is still being interrogated as at the time of filing this report.

Afegbua’s travails began after he released a letter on behalf of Babangida criticising the government of President Muhammadu Buhari and calling for change ahead of the 2019 general elections.

Shortly after he released the statement, a counterstatement credited to Babangida emerged in Minna claiming the earlier statement were the words of Afegbua.

While the former dictator has since owned up to the letter, the police aren’t having it as they insist Afegbua had a case to answer.

According to the police statement, Afeguba has been accused of “making false statement, injurious falsehood, defamation of character and for act capable of inciting public disturbance throughout the country”.

The media consultant arrived the premises in company of his lawyer, Kayode Ajulo and some family members.
