Abubakar Tsav, former Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, has lambasted ex-President, Olusegun Obasanjo over his claim that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government was plotting to harm him.
Abubakar said the former President made the allegations against Buhari’s government because he was afraid of his own shadow.
Obasanjo on Friday claimed that Buhari’s government was planning to frame him and consequently kill him.
The former President, in a statement by his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, said the Buhari-led administration intends to use fake documents and witnesses against him.
He alleged that he has been informed that his name has been included in the government “watch-list”, and that the security of his life can no longer be guaranteed.
Reacting to the allegation, Tsav stressed that Obasanjo perpetrated so many evils while in government, hence the need to be investigated.
Speaking with Punch, Tsav said, “Obasanjo is afraid of his own shadow. He did so many evils when he was in power. He had the opportunity to immortalise Abiola; but because of his selfishness, he lost it, whereas he benefited from the supreme price Abiola paid to entrench democracy.
“Now that Buhari has done this for Abiola and this seems to have frustrated his agenda against Buhari’s second term bid, he has to look for an escape route.”
“If I were him, I will present myself for investigation; but you know that as former president, he is afraid of entering the witness box where he will be cross-examined.”
