The Osun State chapter of the All Progressive Congress, APC, on Friday, February 20, gave a two-week ultimatum to the Nigeria Police Force and Department of State Security, DSS, to arrest former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani- Kayode.
The party is calling for the arrest of Fani- Kayode over the purported video showing how the party allegedly rigged last year’s poll in Osun State.
APC, in a reaction to the claims by Fani-Kayode, when he appeared on a Lagos-based television station on Thursday, February 20, said, if concerned authorities fail to prosecute the director of Media of Jonathan Campaign Organisation, it would compel Governor Aregbesola to set up an independent panel to probe the matter.
Osun APC chairman, Gboyega Famodun, who addressed a press conference in Osogbo, said: “APC is demanding for an Independent Judicial Commission of Enquiry into the entire process leading to the Osun Election.”
“When the panel of enquiry is convoked, it must be given the power to extract evidence from anybody through invitation and that nobody must refuse to appear before it. “Failure by the president, National Assembly and security agents on this within two weeks, we will call on the governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola, to take up the task of setting up of the panel of enquiry without delay,” Famoodun said.
The party also threatened to institute a law suit against Fani-Kayode, if he refuses to apologise for telling lies against it, stressing that the video was a fabricated lie to thwart the general campaign of the APC.
