- A group has accused former president Olusegun Obasanjo of plotting to cause mayhem in the country before and after the general elections
- The group said intelligence at its disposal indicates the coming of Armageddon in Nigeria if FG and the international community does not take urgent steps to thwart the move by Obasanjo
- According to the group, Obasanjo should be held solely responsible for any untoward incident that would lead to loss of lives in Nigeria before, during and after the general elections
A non-governmental organisation, Concerned Nigerian Masses (CNM), stormed the streets of Abuja on Wednesday, January 23, to protest against the former president of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.
The group accused the former president of plotting to cause mayhem in the country and urged the federal government to question the former president.
Members of the group marched from Unity Fountain, Abuja to the Presidential Villa to protest against Obasanjo.
Spokesperson of the group, Comrade Okpokwu Ogenyi, said: “Without mincing words, the Concerned Nigerian Masses have it on good authority that an individual who claims to be an elder statesman have concluded plans in cahoots with other equally unscrupulous elements to cause mayhem in the country before and after the general elections.
"The honourable minister of information revealed this much and we are 100% in agreement with position because it tallies with the actionable intelligence at our disposal on how armed bandits and Boko Haram insurgents have been mobilized to engage in massive attacks and other acts of violence in several states across the country to suit their self-serving destabilizing the country.
“The Concerned Nigerian Masses frowns at such displays by people that are supposed to work for the unity of Nigeria, but instead they have opted to go the devil’s way by plotting and scheming to make the country ungovernable and unstable all in an attempt to truncate our nascent democracy."
The group also called on international communities to question the former president, while accusing him of being the arrowhead of the destabilisation plot in Nigeria, having seen that he might not get his way this time around.
“Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has activated his network of marauding foot soldiers to ensure the smooth implementation of this evil agenda using unconventional means that would not be traced to him or any of his associates in the states they have so decided on.
“We are consequently concerned because it is the masses that would be at the receiving end of this evil agenda because Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and his cohorts have built high fences in their abodes and had scores of security agents at their disposal that protects them whereas the common man and woman on the street is at the mercy of the whims and caprices of these agents of humanity.
"Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has perfected the evil plot to run simultaneously across Nigeria. In the form of assassinations, widespread kidnappings, ethnic and religious incitements, attacks on churches and mosques, detonation of bombs in public places such as markets and motor parks that have a large concentration of people, as well as the destruction of farms and the rustling of cattle to instigate the farmers/herders conflict and many other nefarious activities.

“The Concerned Nigerian Masses have indeed decided that enough is enough for Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, as the intelligence at our disposal indicates the coming of Armageddon in Nigeria if the federal government and the international community does not take urgent steps to thwart the move by Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.
“We are consequently calling on the United States of America to declare Chief Olusegun Obasanjo as an enemy of Nigeria and humanity. We call on the international community as well to hold him solely responsible for any untoward incident that would lead to loss of lives in Nigeria before, during and after the general elections," the statement added.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the National Council of State (NCS) on Monday, January 22, presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari, said it was not aware of any threat to the forthcoming general elections as claimed by the federal government.
The NCS spoke up after the minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed, claimed at a world press conference in Abuja, that the opposition parties are plotting widespread violence across Nigeria in order to truncate the forthcoming general elections.
