IGP orders arrest of IBB’s media aide, Kassim Afegbua over statement on Buhari

The Inspector General of PoliceIbrahim Idris, has reportedly ordered the arrest of the media aide to former President Ibrahim Babangida, Prince Kassim Afegbua for the statement he issued on behalf of his boss. The Nation reports that the issuance of the warrant of arrest was disclosed by a Presidency source last night.

Afegbua in a statement purportedly issued on Sunday on behalf of Babangida had quoted the former President saying that President Muhammadu Buhari should not seek for reelection in 2019. But the former President, in a swift reaction, denied issuing such a statement. He called on Nigerians to disregard the earlier statement by Afegbua.
The Presidency source, who does not want his name in print, said that the IGP has ordered for  the arrest of Kassim Afegbua for allegedly issuing a  fake statement.

Afegbua was advised to submit himself to the force headquarters within 24 hours or face arrest.

The media aide has however insisted that he had the permission of the former president to issue the statement credited to him. Afegbua was on Channels TV last night where he stated that he has spoken to Babangida and the former leader said that the first statement stands.
