Police Declare IBB's Spokesman Kassim Afegbua Wanted

A former Edo State Commissioner for Information and spokesman for former Military President General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, Mr Kazeem Afegbua, has been declared wanted by the police.

Mr Afegbua is wanted because of conflicting statements bordering on the performance of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration and whether the President should seek re-election.

The Force spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, speaking with Channels Tv said Aregbua has been accused of defamation of character, causing disorder through his statement which raised eyebrows in the country.

"The fact remains that it is only personalities in public offices that have immunity not to be declared wanted by the police".

Afegbua has however insisted that the first statement released by him was authorized by Babanginda.


The statement added, "When the ruling party campaigned with the change mantra, I had thought they would device new methods, provoke new initiatives and proffer new ways to addressing some of our developmental problems".

Babangida disowned the statement and instead issued another one, signed by him, in which he canvassed for the realignment of political forces for the emergence of two strong parties in the country.

Babangida's avowal is coming on the back of the controversy that trailed the statement following another statement purportedly issued by him, in which he allegedly denied the earlier statement. "I have spoken with him and he said he has not recanted the statement".

Babangida, who annulled the June 12 presidential election in 1993, said he had unfettered access to Buhari and could meet him in person without resorting to any open letter. The kernel of that statement should inform public discourse and not necessarily people personalising it as if it were to be against the sitting president.

"He is not personalizing his statement against the incumbent president".
