Femi Adesina Lashes Out At Enyinnaya Abaribe For Exacerbating Security Challenges In The South-East
Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, has slammed Enyinnaya Abaribe, Senator representing Abia-South Senatorial District in Abia State, for ‘exacerbating Nigeria’s security challenges.
Femi Adesina berated Abaribe in a post titled: WEIGHTY MATTERS ABOUT OUR COUNTRY, which was published on his known Facebook page on Thursday night, saying the senate minority leader should be cooling off in jail.
“Some people incite violence through words or actions, thus exacerbating the security challenges we have. You wonder where they are from, and why they would further stoke a burning fire with incendiary materials,” Femi Adesina wrote.
“There is one funny Senator who talks about the mismanagement of our diversity as a country, yet he daily uses foul language against those in leadership. He stood surety for someone bent on dismemberment of the country, and when that one vanished, and he should have been cooling his feet in prison, the Senator still spews rubbish. Chief ‘mismanager’ of our diversity. And the President had words for him and his ilk, who exist around the country: ‘We are ready to arrest and prosecute all persons inciting violence through words or action. Our resolve for a peaceful, united and one Nigeria remains resolute and unwavering. The seeds of violence are planted in people’s heads through words. Reckless utterances of a few have led to losses of many innocent lives and destruction of properties.’”
It should be recalled that Abaribe served as a surety for Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), who jumped bail a few years ago.
Kanu was granted bail in April 2017 after being detained for 18 months, but he fled Nigeria later that year after soldiers raided his home in Abia state as part of a military crackdown on IPOB members.
He was arrested again in June and extradited to Nigeria to stand trial for treasonable felony.
Since then, the IPOB leader has been detained by the Department of State Services (DSS) pending the continuation of his trial.
