A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Femi Fani-Kayode has described the supporter of the presidential candidate of an Obidient who was dragged out of an aircraft by security agents of the airport, as a terrorist.

The Informant247 earlier reported that a supporter of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi was dragged out of a flight traveling from Abuja to Lagos State at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport.

In a video which has gone viral on social media, the unidentified lone protester could be seen shouting as he was being dragged out of the plane.

While commenting on the issue on Twitter, the former minister of aviation said the suspect and his sponsors were testing the waters for something bigger in the country.

Fani-Kayode described the suspect’s aggressive character as a reflection of the attitude and mentality of an average Obidient.

The party’s chieftain blamed Peter Obi and his running mate, Dati Baba-Ahmed for endorsing violence among their followers with their comments and that they should be held to account for it.

He praised the workers of the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and the security operatives over the arrest of the suspect and for dragging him out of the aircraft before it took off.

He wrote: “The mad Obidient that got on the plane yesterday and disrupted the flight whilst shouting that Asiwaju would never be sworn in is nothing but a terrorist and I believe that he and those who sent him were testing the waters for something bigger.

“I commend the staff of FAAN and the security agencies for dragging him off the plane before it took off. They saved many lives by doing so.

“His violent behaviour and abusive words which traumatised many that were in the flight accurately reflect the mindset and attitude of the Obidients: they are frustrated, violent, dangerous, angry, and capable of doing anything to achieve their purpose. Worst still they seek to destabilize our country and subvert the democratic process and the rule of law.

While reacting to the development, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo who doubles as the spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council said the Obidient has been shown the difference between causing chaos on social media for engagement and causing it in reality.

He said the presidential candidate of the LP needs to speak against the recent outbursts that ‘Tinubu must not be sworn in’.

He said Tinubu has called for healing and unity of the country.

He said: “One emotionally and mentally dysfunctional ‘OBIdient’ who carried his ‘Tinubu-must-not-be-sworn-in’ campaign to a local flight yesterday and was forcefully deboarded when he became disruptive, has just seen the difference between causing trouble in real life and mobilising the headless mob on social media for likes and retweets.

“And it is important that since this dangerous action amounting to public nuisance was carried out in supposed support of one of the Presidential candidates, that candidate MUST come out to condemn it unreservedly. @officialABAT has since issued a statement calling on his supporters to tone down the rhetoric and to embrace national healing and reconciliation. We expect no less from the other candidates”
