The Yobe State Command of the Nigeria Police Force, has arrested one of its personnel identified as Sunday Japhet, for allegedly insulting President Buhari, Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, and the Inspector-General of Police, IGP, on his Facebook page.
The State Commissioner of Police, Sunmonu Adeyemi Abdulmaliki, on Wednesday, confirmed the arrest of the Policeman, in a reply to a message sent to him, saying: “Yes, and transferred him to Zone 12 HQ Bauchi.”
However, the CP did not give further details.
Japhet, a Mobile Police Officer, on August 9, took to his Facebook page and wrote:
“This is Nigeria, with a President who wants to fight corruption and tackle insecurities, with the Vice, who claimed to be a man of God without truth, with many elected Senators, with an IGP that thinks things will change, its a pity for them; those that lead this country, I pray that this demonstration that is going to happen on 14/8 in Maiduguri, Yobe, Adamawa, and other places that Mobile Police on special duty are going to hold for their allowances, be the beginning of something in this great country led by evil men. We are inviting all the Media to be there for us, these people that call themselves Leaders, are all aware that this money used to be in some people’s joint account to get interest, then after 3-4 months they pay; no one will say he does not know what is happening that this money is not paid. God will come down himself to help Nigerians. If really this is Buhari handling this country this way, I better die for truth, than to be seeing nonsense.”
