Founder of pan-Yoruba group, the Oodua Peoples’ Congress (OPC), Dr. Frederick Fasehun has called for the beefing up of security around Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.
He said there were security lapses that occurred during Osinbajo’s recent visit to Benin, Edo State, which he observed was an opportunity that could have been exploited by insurgents to launch a suicide attack on the Vice-President.
He said this in Lagos at a press briefing he addressed on the state of the nation.
Fasehun, who described as less than acceptable the manner Osinbajo’s security was handled during his visit to Benin, urged the Vice President’s security handlers to be more alert and alive to their responsibilities.
According to him, “Security lapses occurred during his visit to Benin, Edo State, when a young boy beat the cordon around His Excellency to steal a handshake from him. Viewed critically, the incident highlights a security breach a bomber could easily exploit.”
“His handlers must take his personal security more seriously. Nothing must happen to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.
“God forbid that he should be the object of any attack, it will spell doom for this country because then you can trust the Yorubas and the South West to make both the blood of the dogs and the baboons really, really bloody,” he said.
