A Police officer has been arrested over his Facebook post which was alleged to be an insult on President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu.
The officer, identified as Sunday Japhet was a personnel with the Yobe State Police Command before his arrest over the alleged offensive social media post.
The State Commissioner of Police, Sunmonu Adeyemi, who confirmed the arrest of Japhet to DAILY POST in a reply to a message sent to him on Wednesday, said “Yes and Transferred Him to Zone 12 HQ Bauchi”.
Japhet, a Mobile Police on August 9th took to his Facebook page to express his anger over the way the country is being managed by Buhari and Osinbajo.
In the controversial post, he had hinted that mobile police officers were planning a nationwide protest on August 14 over their allowances.
Japhet also alleged that the allowances of the personnel are being kept in an account by the authorities to yield interest after which it would be paid after four months.
He declared that he would rather die for truth ‘than to be seeing nonsense’.
“This is Nigeria, with a president who want to fight corruption and tackle insecurities, with the vice who claimed to be a man of God without truth, with many elected senators, with IGP that we think 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, this people call their self leaders are all aware that this money use to be in some people joint account to get interest,then after 3-4 month they pay, no one will say he don’t know what is happening that this money is not paid, God will come down himself to help Nigerian if really this is buhari handling this country this way,i better die for truth then to be, seeing nonsense”.
