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 to the development via Twitter, Fani-Kayode said the suspect and those who sent him were testing the waters for something bigger in the country.
The former minister said the suspect’s violent behaviour and abusive words which traumatised many that were in the flight accurately reflect the mindset and attitude of the Obidients.
Fani-Kayode opined that Peter Obi and Dati Baba-Ahmed have encouraged and endorsed the violent and subversive behaviour of their supporters with their inciting comments and utterances and they must be held accountable.
He commended the staff of the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and the security agencies for arresting the suspect and evacuating him off the plane before it took off.
He wrote: “The mad Obidient that got on the plane yesterday and disrupted the flight whilst shouting that Asiwaju would never be sworn in is nothing but a terrorist and I believe that he and those who sent him were testing the waters for something bigger.
“I commend the staff of FAAN and the security agencies for dragging him off the plane before it took off. They saved many lives by doing so.
“His violent behaviour and abusive words which traumatised many that were in the flight accurately reflect the mindset and attitude of the Obidients: they are frustrated, violent, dangerous, angry, and capable of doing anything to achieve their purpose. Worst still they seek to destabilize our country and subvert the democratic process and the rule of law.
“Simply put they are dangerous anarchists and if they are not restrained and put in check by our security and intelligence agencies they will end up endangering the lives of many Nigerians, aborting our democracy, and destroying our country.
“Peter Obi and Dati the Daft have encouraged and endorsed their violent and subversive behaviour with their inciting comments and utterances and we hold them accountable.
“If it is not Dr. Ezeife saying they will make Nigeria ungovernable if Asiwaju is sworn-in or some misguided Eze in Ajao Estate, Lagos saying they will call IPOB to defend the Igbos of Lagos state then it is Chief Iwanyanwu calling Yorubas rascals. How much more of this can we take?
“The actions of the mad terrorist on the plane stand condemned and I can only thank God that he did not have a weapon otherwise things could have been far worse.
“I call on the security agencies to beef up security at the airports and keep an eagle eye on all passengers. I also call for restraint even in the face of these provocations. We must maintain the peace and ensure that our unity is sustained.
“We must not allow them to provoke us into responding in an irrational, violent, unlawful, or unreasonable manner. We must be prayerful, focused, and calm and we must ensure that nothing disrupts the stability, peace, and unity of our nation or the swearing-in of our President-elect.
“If anyone believes that yesterday’s event on the plane at Abuja airport was a random isolated case carried out by a crazy “lone wolf” operator that was acting on his own then they still don’t know what the Obidients and other opposition groups seek to achieve. Nigerians beware!”
The mad Obidient that got on the plane yesterday and disrupted the flight whilst shouting that Asiwaju would never be sworn-in is a nothing but a terrorist and I believe that he and those who sent him were testing the waters for something bigger.
