FastNews reports that the Nigeria First Movement and True Nigeria Patriots raised the alarm on Wednesday about an alleged plot by some individuals to use their names to carry out a protest against President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja and London.
The two groups, on the other hand, stated that they have petitioned the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, and the Director-General of the Department of State Services, Yusuf Bichi, to find out who is behind the plot.
Addressing journalists in Abuja, they specifically claimed that the impostors wanted to smear Buhari’s and the Central Bank Governor’s names, as well as further embarrass Nigeria, with their protests.
Speaking at the briefing jointly addressed with the executive members of the True Nigeria Patriots in Abuja, the National Coordinator of the Nigeria First Movement, Emmanuel Anuforo, further alleged that the faceless persons had perfected plans to organize protests by hiring miscreants in Abuja, Lagos, and London, to march against the Buhari administration.
Anuforo called on the security agents to immediately arrest the alleged impostors and their sponsors for further investigations.
He said, “They (the protesters) have already mobilized the media and have set out to hire miscreants under whose cover they will operate.”
The groups said the issue which the alleged impostors claimed was the reason for the protests was a 2018 matter which had long been laid to rest, insisting that there was the likelihood that more sinister plots were underway
Anuforo added, “However because the impostors had nothing else to hold on to, they decided to wake up a dead horse. The large amount disbursed, the desperation of impersonating the leaders of credible pro-Buhari organizations, and the hiring of miscreants to march and barricade the Central Bank Headquarters, point to more sinister plots. “They could attack the members of staff and cause mayhem at the headquarters of the apex bank. They could also attack other public buildings and innocent persons.”
