The Senator representing Bayelsa East, Ben Murray Bruce has said that if President Muhammadu Buhari is not stopped, he may remove the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye and the Sultan or the Obi of Onitsha next.
This is following the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Walter Onnoghen.
President Muhammadu Buhari had suspended Onnoghen and immediately appointed Tanko Mohammed as acting CJN on Friday.
According to Buhari, he suspended Onnoghen following an order from the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT.
Reacting, Bruce, on his twitter handle, said: “We watched as Abacha killed and removing anyone who stood his way and we said we are not Yoruba or from Abiola’s family.
“Then one day he removed the Sultan himself. If we don’t stop @MBuhari today, we don’t know who he will remove next. It could be Sultan, Ooni, Emir, Oba or Obi.”
