“Who the hell is he that I would want to kill him?” | Obasanjo replies Bamaiyi

by Dolapo Adelana

A former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Sunday dismissed the claim by a former Chief of Army Staff, Ishaya Bamaiyi, that his government plotted to kill him.

Baimiyi had made the allegation in his book, “The Vindication of a General” released last weekend.

Responding to Bamaiyi’s claim, while playing host to members of the Correspondents Chapel, Nigeria Union of Journalists, Ogun Chapter, at his hilltop residence in Abeokuta, Obasanjo said his government only questioned Bamaiyi.

“That I wanted to kill him? What of the people he killed? My government did not plot to kill him.

“My government asked him to answer to those that were alleged to have been killed by him and that is legitimate.

“That if there is an allegation that you have done something, that you have committed a crime, then you are arrested, you should answer and that is all.

“Who the hell is he that I would want to kill him? Kill him for what? To achieve what? No!

“There were allegations, the police and the law enforcement agencies decided to look into the allegations.

“They invited him and they asked him to answer as a result of what was found, so they charged him to court.

“So, it’s now up to him, the investigators as I said, the prosecutors and the judiciary. That’s all,” Obasanjo said.
