The Spokesperson for former Military President, General Ibrahim Babangida on Wednesday appeared at the Force Headquarter in Abuja.
Kassim Afegbua had been declared wanted over a letter he issued on behalf of General Babangida on the state of the nation.
Police Spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, had accused Afegbua of “making a false statement, injurious falsehood, defamation of character and for acts capable of inciting public disturbance throughout the country.”
Before reporting himself, Afegbua explains that he is simply being a law-abiding citizen by presenting himself to the police.
“When I was declared wanted on Channels TV and NTA, he (General Babangida) was the one who called me and said, ‘why are they declaring you wanted? Are you a criminal?’
“So, we laughed over it. He asked ‘are you on the run, have they given you an invitation?’ I replied No.
“So, I am very much in touch with him, I am not doing anything out of the blues. I am only here because I was declared wanted. I am not a criminal, I am not on the run. As a responsible Nigerian, I felt it was unwise on the part of the police to declare me wanted when I have not been invited,” he said.
