Keyamo Petitions DSS To Arrest Peter Obi And Datti Baba-Ahmed Over Incendiary Comments

Mr Festus Keyamo, a spokesman of the All Progressive Congress(APC), has petitioned the Department of State Services (DSS), demanding the arrest and prosecution of Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed, over incendiary comments.

In the petition addressed to the Director-General DSS and dated March 23, 2023,  Keyamo asked the DSS to “rein” in Obi and Datti.

Keyamo said that since the declaration of the presidential election results, Obi and Baba-Ahmed have been moving from one media house to the other making incendiary comments and claims about the declaration of Tinubu as President-elect by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

He further stated that Baba-Ahmed, on Channels TV, On Wednesday, March 22, 2023, unilaterally declared the president-elect as unconstitutional and that swearing in Tinubu on May 29th, 2023 would lead to mayhem in the country.

Keyamo said “These comments and claims are made, not just within the boundaries of exercising their rights to freedom of speech and the freedom to air their grievances publicly, but they have since crossed the line to call for the outright truncation of democracy by insisting on the adoption of other processes outside the contemplation of our Constitution”.

“In some cases, their privies have even called for the establishment of an Interim Government.”

The petition however states, “It is noteworthy that Peter Obi and Datti Baba-Ahmed have submitted elections petitions to the courts for adjudication, but their conducts and utterances amount to a subversion of the processes they have instituted in court and a subversion of our Constitution and the laid-down processes for addressing disputes and grievances.

“These conduct and utterances are a build-up to something more sinister and it is important you rein them in now!

“In the circumstance, I submit this petition in my personal capacity as a patriotic Nigerian to invite/arrest, interrogate and after investigation, if necessary, charge both individuals to court for their conduct which amounts to incitement and treasonable felony.”
