Popular Nigerian pastor calls on security agencies to arrest Tinubu, gives reasons

Bishop Seun Adeoye, the Lead Bishop of Worldwide Anglican Church (WAC) has called for the arrest of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, over inciting statements.

The Bishop has called on the security agents to summon Tinubu over inciting inciting comments he made at a meeting with one of his support organizations.

The cleric in a statement made available on Friday, criticised the former Governor of Lagos State for telling his lovers to accumulate power “at all cost”.

“For emphasis, let me quote Tinubu in this video trending on the social media, ‘Political power is not going to be served in a restaurant… it is being determined by what we are doing, to do it all cost, fight for it, grab it, snatch it…’”.

“To get political power at all cost and to fight for it, grab it and snatch it have grave implications. He is saying in essence that the forthcoming elections in Nigeria should be a do or die affair.

“This is a call to mayhem, lawlessness and pandemonium. He is simply inciting his followers to violence and to cause chaos in the country.

“Nigerians should not forget in a hurry the bloody violence of 2011 General election where over 800 souls including some innocent youth corpers were massacred just because of an inciting comment of a presidential candidate.

“And we are still living to remember how a sitting president said his ambition did not worth the blood of anyone. For Tinubu who is the ruling party’s presidential candidate to have spoken as this should worry Nigerians.
The right activist cleric urged the nation’s security agents to without delay arrest, quiz and charge to court the APC presidential candidate if he truly made such statement.

The cleric added that someone like the APC chieftain should not be frivolous with his utterances knowing the fact that comments such as “at all cost” could be received by his loyalists as “an order to get the job done by whatever means even if it means killing and maiming.

“I am sure Tinubu is not too big and he has no immunity neither is he above the law of the land to be interrogated by the Department of Security Service or by the Nigerian Police. To avoid bloodshed in the coming election, the APC flag bearer’s comments must not be waved aside.

Bishop Adeoye added: “People like Tinubu and his family will flee this country if there is any form of violence. But over 99 percent of Nigerians including my humble self have no where to go”
