The comment made by the former President Olusegun Obasanjo recently over the plots to islamise Nigeria is still generating serious reactions from the public.

Indications suggest that the comment where Obasanjo allegedly levelled heavy allegations on President Muhammadu Buhari might have landed him in trouble with the government of the day.

This came as the Department of State Services (DSS) has allegedly barricaded the country home of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo in an attempt to arrest him, According to SkyTrend News, the DSS wants the former President to defend his allegations accusing President Muhammadu Buhari of plotting to use Boko Haram, herdsmen to Islamize Nigeria.

Obasanjo, who spoke on the topic, “Mobilizing Nigeria’s human and natural resources for national development and stability” also said both Boko Haram and herdsmen acts of violence were not treated as they should at the beginning.

According to him, “They have both incubated and developed beyond what Nigeria can handle alone. They are now combined and internationalized with ISIS in control.

The DSS noted that it is necessary for Obasanjo to come to the commission office to answer questions on the weighty allegations leveled against the Government of Nigeria. The DSS has allegedly surrounded the farmland of Olusegun Obasanjo to arrest him, the Pointernews.com reports.

Also according to Daily Independent Newspaper, Obasanjo is currently out of Nigeria, quoting his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi. Akinyemi who was reacting to the reports of the alleged invasion of the former president’s Ota farm in Abeokuta by men of the DSS promised to enquire and get more information about the development.

Obasanjo has not hid his stance on national issues ever since he left government. He has been very vocal and openly criticises the government in power without fear or favour.

He was very critical of the government of the Peoples Democratic Party then led by Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan. Obasanjo openly opposed Jonathan’s re-election in 2015 through his stiff criticisms.

Former President Obasanjo was also open about his stance against the re-election of President Buhari in the run up to the 2019 presidential election. He had written to Buhari not to contest. Obasanjo even openly declared support for the PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

Just two months ago, Obasanjo has lamented over the level of disunity in the country, stressing that the situation now is worse than what was experienced during the civil war. “When we look at this country today, even during the civil war, we were not as divided as we are today. Today, we are in danger if we don’t take partnership seriously,” he said.

The Former President had in January this year accused President Muhammadu Buhari of returning the country to the era when state institutions were used to fight perceived enemies of the government. Obasanjo had alleged then that the President was putting into practice, the lessons he allegedly learned from late General Sani Abacha.

“Today, another Abacha Era is here. The security institutions are being misused to fight all critics and opponents of Buhari and to derail our fledgeling democracy,” he claimed.

“EFCC, Police and Code of Conduct Tribunal are also being equally misused to deal with those Buhari see as enemies for criticising him or as those who may not do his bidding in manipulating election results. If democracy is derailed or aborted, anarchy and authoritarianism will automatically follow. It is clear from all indications that Buhari is putting into practice the lessons he learned from Abacha.”

No one knows how the recent issue reportedly involving Obasanjo and the current government will eventually play out as it bothers on security issues affecting the country. Only time will tell how the whole event plays out.
