Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has challenged the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, to name those “treasury looters” that he claimed are sponsoring the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), saying “it is high time Nigerians begin to hold the Information Minister accountable for his frivolous claims.”
Governor Fayose said the Information Minister is fast assuming the position of the “Liar-General” of the federation, having lied to gain power and still lying to sustain it. He pointed out that more than twenty months after he claimed that fifty-five Nigerians stole over one-point-three-four trillion naira from the country’s treasury from 2006 to 2013, Lai Mohammed is yet to tell Nigerians who the fifty-five people are.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, Fayose described Lai Mohammed as “an embodiment of contradictions, who speaks from several sides of his mouth, turning himself to a vegetable while struggling to defend a government that has done more evil than good to Nigeria and its people.”
Calling on the international community, especially the United Nations and the International Criminal Court, ICC, to investigate the heinous crime being committed by the military against Nigerians in the Southeast, Governor Fayose said there was no law in Nigeria empowering the military to declare any organization as terrorist and kill unarmed people.
