Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has revealed that he has received several death threats over his stance against the current government.
In a statement titled, “Points for Concern and Action”, issued on Sunday, the former leader said;
“God of Nigeria is a living God and a prayer-answering God. Nigerians must cry out to God to deliver Nigeria. Here again, I have been threatened with arrest and extermination but I will not succumb to intimidation or threats.
Maybe I should remind those who are using the probe as a threat that I have been probed four times by EFCC, ICPC, House of Representatives and the Senate and Buhari has access to reports of these probes. But I have also challenged Buhari and the criminals around him to set up a probe on the same allegations and I will face such probe in public.
But I know that these criminals cannot withstand a Police inquiry let alone clinical probe on the past public offices they held.
My fervent prayer is that President Buhari may live to see the will and purpose of God for Nigeria.
My final appeal to him is to desist from evil with manipulation and desperation because evil has repercussion especially as man who should watch and be mindful of his self-acclaimed and packaged integrity. At the end of the day, those who goad you on will leave you in the lurch.
You will be left alone, Unclad and unheralded. In defeat, which must be Buhari’s fear leading to desperation, he and his co-travellers can still maintain the modicum of decency, and exhibit fear of God in their actions.”
