Ben Murray Bruce, Senator representing Bayelsa East has reacted to the arrest of former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Babachir Lawalby the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
The Senator said the arrest of the former SGF was not unconnected to the statement by former President Olusegun Obasanjo lambasting President Muhammadu Buhari over his incompetence to rule Nigeria.
In a tweet via his social media handle, the lawmaker mocked the current Federal Government over the timing of Lawal’s arrest.
The business mogul mockingly said other former Presidents should write letters so that “all of a sudden we will deal with herdsmen killings and other issues.”
He wrote: “Moments ago, news got out that former SGF, Babachir Lawal has been finally arrested by the EFCC. Many believe the long awaited arrest is a direct result of the letter written to President Buhari by Olusegun Obasanjo yesterday.
“All of a sudden they announce that the committee on restructuring will submit its report tomorrow.
“All of a sudden Babachir Lawal is detained. Maybe other former Presidents should also write letters. Then may be all of a sudden we will deal with herdsmen killings and other issues.”
Recall that Buhari had in October sacked Lawal and replaced him with Boss Mohammed.
