Northern Youths Call For Oshiomhole, Kyari, Akpabio’s Arrest
The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) has called for the arrest of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole over the invasion of the National Assembly by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).
The group alleged that the APC Chairman and some key officials in the presidency may have orchestrated the invasion.
But the Oshiomhole-led APC and the presidency have since denied involvement in the act.
The incident, which occurred on Tuesday morning, prevented lawmakers and staff of the National Assembly from gaining access into the complex, leading to the sack of its boss Lawan Daura.
And in its reaction, the Arewa youth group described it as “treasonable felony.”

“Our close look at the unfolding siege on the National Assembly in a desperate bid to launch a coup against a democratically-elected Senate President Bukola Saraki was a smear on decorum, antithetical to democracy and its institutions,” the group said.
“This clear case of treasonable felony against our collective conscience is condemnable in the strongest of words. It has once again ridiculed our image as a democratic and independent nation.
“We suspect enemies of democracy behind the desperate bid to use force in grabbing power out of the hand of the Senate President.
“We commend acting President Yemi Osinbajo’s prompt response to the brigandage of the Lawal Daura’s gestapo style of truncating democracy.
“We call for stiff sanctions by way of arrests of other collaborators in this national ridicule, notably Senators Abu Ibrahim, Adamu Abdullahi, Godswill Akpabio, Ahmed Lawan, Adams Oshiomhole and Abba Kyari, in order to send the right signals that the long arm of law is set to catch up with the lawbreakers in our midst.
“We call for the immediate setting up of a special panel of Inquest to deal with this brazen impunity.”
