The spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, Fetus Keyamo, has reacted to the viral video of a Labour Party (LP) supporter being evacuated from a flight.
Rant HQ earlier reported that some security agents, on Friday evening, forcefully removed a yet-to-be-identified passenger from an Ibom Air flight over unruly behavior before the take-off.
The man reportedly shouted on the airplane that on no account should the President-elect, Bola Tinubu be sworn in as Nigerian leader.
His strange behavior attracted the attention of other passengers and flight attendants who called in some security personnel and forcibly removed him from the plane.
As the man struggled with the security men, he kept on shouting that ‘Obidients’ were looking at him being manhandled in the plane.
Reacting via Twitter, the Minister for State for Labour and Employment said the LP supporter has seen the difference between causing chaos in reality and mobilizing a headless mob on social media for engagement.
He noted that it is important that Peter Obi publicly condemn the recent trend that ‘Tinubu must not be sworn in’, adding that the President-elect has since called on supporters to embrace healing and reconciliation.
He said: “One emotionally and mentally dysfunctional ‘OBIdient’ who carried his ‘Tinubu-must-not-be-sworn-in’ campaign to a local flight yesterday and was forcefully deboarded when he became disruptive, has just seen the difference between causing trouble in real life and mobilising the headless mob on social media for likes and retweets.
“And it is important that since this dangerous action amounting to public nuisance was carried out in supposed support of one of the Presidential candidates, that candidate MUST come out to condemn it unreservedly. @officialABAT has since issued a statement calling on his supporters to tone down the rhetoric and to embrace national healing and reconciliation. We expect no less from the other candidates”
