The Police have released, the young man, Muhammad Lawan Faro, who climbed a billboard hanger in Yola, Adamawa state, after he threatened to jump down, if President Buhari doesn’t resign in 24 hours.
Lawan Faro said his action was necessitated by the “extreme poverty” in the land. “I think it’s time for Buhari to give way for someone like Atiku Abubakar to lead us out of the present hardship”, he cried.
He threatened to fall off after 12 hours if Atiku Abubakar does not show up to assure him of Buhari’s ouster in 2019.
“I will remain here for 12 hours to show my discontent, and someone not less than Atiku must come here to assure me that this government must be sacked in the forthcoming election.”
Mustapha Atiku Ribadu who met with Faro after his release wrote on Facebook.
With the boy Muhammad Lawan on the billboard hanger yesterday. We spoke extensively with the boy this afternoon, I sincerely believe he is very sane and is not doing this thing for any monetary gain or under the influence of any drug or persons.
I am proud of how the police handled the situation, Dan Sanda Abokin Kowa. I am equally happy how some Atiku Abubakar supporters responded to the situation, so also our members of the BLACKCAP revolution and the APC faithfuls.
The boy told me in private he has nothing against PMB but a pro Atiku Abubakar a diehard supporter of the former VP.
