No shaking: Cleric who prophesied Tinubu won’t become president boasts as police invite him for questioning
“In order to facilitate the investigation, you are requested to report to the office in charge of Zonal Complaint Response Unit, CSP Olukode Taofiki with GSM No. 08063250810 on 2nd February 2022 by 1000hrs.”
On Solomon’s Instagram page, several posts critiquing the Nigerian government and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) were posted.
The latest was about him criticising the national leader of the party and frontline presidential aspirant, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The former Lagos governor had recently declared his intention to run for the country’s president in 2023.
The cleric had said in a video post recently:
“If I am a true Prophet of God, Tinubu will not become the President of Nigeria and he becomes the president, he will not spend 4 years before he will die.”

There have been a series of allegations against the former Lagos state governor in the public space after the declaration of his ambition to contest in the 2023 presidential poll.
Oladejo, on Tuesday, January 25, during a media parley on a wide range of issues, charged those kicking against Tinubu's presidential ambition to be democratic and provide facts rather than resorting to cheap blackmail
