Kayode Ajulo, an Abuja-based human rights lawyer, has threatened to sue security agencies if, within seven days, they fail to question former member of the House of Representatives Junaid Mohammed, Mujaheed Dokubo-Asari and others for making aggravating statements threatening national security.
Mohammed, was quoted to have said “…blood would flow on the streets of Nigeria should President Jonathan insist on running for the presidency in 2015.”
The Tribune reports:
Aside Dr Mohammed, Ajulo also called for interrogation of Alhaji Mujaheed Dokubo-Asari for making inflamatory statements on the 2015 general election, arguing that their conduct was a threat to the stability of the country.
Ajulo, who briefed newsmen in Abuja, said “with growing insecurity in the country, a call by a citizen for more bloodshed in 2015 is nothing but a coded language, targeted at a particular set of persons to be ready for war.
“This should be viewed very seriously by our security agencies. I use this medium to call on the Inspector General of Police, the Director of State Security Service and other security agencies of government to look into the underlying messages being passed across to insurgents by these individuals.”
For those who wanted to stop President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015, the legal practitioner said there were modus operandi, as enshrined in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as it related to changing an elected president of the country.
Ajulo said President Jonathan was qualified to run for the office of president in 2015, adding that “he may not enjoy the right if he is disqualified by a court of law in Nigeria or voted out at the poll by the electorate.
“It is, therefore, my humble view that statements threatening war and bloodshed is an affront on the collective intelligence and well-being of Nigerians and, in sane climes, such provocative utterances will not go unpunished or uninvestigated.”
