A politician and one-time presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba urge Nigerians to defend their fellow Nigerians wherever they are, Kogi State News reports.
This is coming after he was criticized for defending the deputy police commissioner, officer Abba Kyari who is currently facing allegations by the US authorities.
His words read;
“We should defend Nigerians wherever they are and ensure that they are treated according to Nigerian laws, provided they’re not international criminals. For those saying I defended Abba Kyari because he is from north. What about my ceaseless defense of Chief Allen Onyema when allegations of bank fraud and money laundering was brought against him by a certain court in Atlanta, USA? Was he also a Fulani man?
I had wanted Igboho and Kanu to also come back to Nigeria and answer for their charges because they are Nigerians.
You see, guys, whatever the case, we should never give up on Nigerians provided they’ve done something great and extraordinary for our country like Abba Kyari and Allen Onyema has done.
Keep Huspuppi and his other co-conspirators aside, they are dangerous criminals of international stage and should be treated as such wherever they’re found wanting.
If we throw our important and commited citizens when there are certain actions that we can do to stop it.”
When he came under heavy attack by his followers on social media for defending Kyari because the accused police officer is from the North, Garba reposted a video of himself when he was defending the CEO of Air Peace, Chief Allen Onyema when the CEO was having issues with the US government.
Reposting the video, Garba wrote;
“This was a video of my defense of Chief Allen Onyema, the CEO of Airpeace when he was indicted by the US Court. This is in reference to my defense of Abba Kyari.”
