Former Edo state governor, Adams Oshiomhole, says he would have arrested former President Olusegun Obasanjo if he was Nigeria’s president. 

Comrade Oshiomole, who is vying for the office of the National Chairman of APC,  made the comment when he spoke at the June 12th investiture that held at the state house Abuja.

The former President recently been having hot exchanges with Pres. Buhari and his managers. Obasanjo also accused the federal government of plot to arrest and detain him indefinitely.

Hear Oshiomhole:

“He should be arrested if he has committed any offence. He arrested many of us. So, if we are celebrating Chief Gani Fawehinmi, we have compelling reasons to do so. In all of these, we didn’t pay any money to Gani or Falana. They defended us pro bono. Gani is not here today, but his spirit is here. Falana is here and today, I am standing.

"Even the president who was in charge then, he is now complaining that they want to harass him. He was harassing me and he got me arrested. He thought he himself would not be arrested?

"If I were the president I would arrest him. We are all Nigerians. I remember one day I told him, I said ‘President Obasanjo, we made you president. You did not make me a Nigerian. You are our creation; I am not your creation. You must listen’. But he thought he would be in power forever and he tried to take us on the way to Zimbabwe. He was a reluctant Head of State, became president for two terms and he wanted to do a third term because a cockroach licking palm oil would never lick enough''.
