The Buhari Media Support Group has asked for the arrest and interrogation of politician cum activist Deji Adeyanju for crimes of sedition allegedly committed during his appearance on a Channels TV Programme, Sunrise Daily on Tuesday.
The group, in a statement signed by its chairman Austin Braimoh and secretary Cassidy Madueke, stated that during the programme, the politician claimed that President Buhari upon landing in the United Kingdom, was immediately whisked to a hospital.
BMSG said that such “mischievous and false statements” were capable of inciting unrest and instability in the country.
“Deji Adeyanju is notorious for his mischief and falsehood. He does this deliberately to incite the public. He is also known for his media consultancy with the Islamic Movement of Nigeria on whose platform he has called for civil unrest across the country against the government.
“He has also taken to the social media several times to make completely false statements against the government, most times implicitly calling for anarchy,” the statement also read.
The group called on all security agencies to act and compel him to produce evidence for the many claims he made that were capable of inciting the public and causing disharmony.
The statement also claimed that people like Mr Adeyanju were the elements in the public that had been responsible for disunity and disharmony in the country, stressing that failure of the security agencies to put a stop to his incitements would have a detrimental effect on the stability and social order of the country.
It also called for the public to discountenance comments coming from Mr Adeyanju who it described as an “agent provocateur” and an enemy of the nation.
Meanwhile Adeyanju has declared that the government is lily-livered if he is not arrested.
“If they don’t arrest me, they are lily-livered,” he posted in a message.
