The leadership of Labour Party has called on the nation’s service chiefs to place the Spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress’ Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo, on security watch list.
This was disclosed in a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary of LP, Abayomi Arabambi and made available to The PUNCH on Tuesday.
The opposition party’s demand was a response to Keyamo’s allegation that the presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi, was planning to fake an assassination attempt and hire some supporters dressed in the APC caps and T-shirts to attack his party offices.
Fuming over Keyamo’s outburst on Tuesday, Arabambi described his action as a ‘treasonable conduct’ that warranted being placed on the terror watch list by security agencies in the country.
The statement partly read, “President Muhammadu Buhari must now as a matter of urgency directs the service chiefs to place Festus Keyamo and other APC presidential Campaign members and supporters on a security watch list as they are now a threat to democracy ahead of the 2023 general elections.
“I called on the Inspector General of Police to urgently commence a comprehensive investigation into Mr Festus Keyamo unlawful and treasonable activities. His conducts are likely to cause breach of peace and anarchy in our country if this ugly trend is not nipped in the bud and Keyamo be made to face possible prosecution in the court of Law.
