Reporter: I covered a protest by Ekingibo youth where they Accuse you of Kidnapping two youths from Rumuigbo in Abuja, We would like you to react to the accusations?
Hon, Okocha: Kidnap cases are reported to security agencies for necessary actions. It’s unheard-of that kidnap or abduction of someone is resolved through protest. So, what in your view, should I respond to pls?.
Reporter: Honorable Sir, good Afternoon, Its because they were carrying placards with your name as inscriptions, we needed you to be aware to get your own side of the story and Moreso Policemen where aware because we spotted their van close to the junction but on standby. can we as newsmen get your own side of the story?
Hon. Okocha: Pls advice them to report me to the security agencies since they are sure that I kidnapped two of their sons Every sane Nigerian knows that issues of kidnap or abductions are within the precincts of the security agencies.
If the hirelings are strongly convinced about what they are alleging, shouldn’t they transfer the wasted energy, to report the case to the Security agencies rather than stage weak protests?.
I can’t patronize the cheap blackmailers who take their briefs from Politicians that I defeated roundly.
Tinubu not Atiku nor Obi, is President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
