Mayhem In 2015: Arrest Junaid Mohammed Now, Youth Group Urges IGP

junaid1The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, has been called upon to arrest and investigate the National Coordinator of Northern Politicians, Academics, Professionals and Businessmen, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, over his remarks that there will be mayhem if the 2015 polls are rigged in favour of incumbent President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan.

The call was made by a group under the aegis of Association of Northern Youth for the Advancement of Peace, Harmony and Development (ANYPAD) in a press statement issued in Jos, Plateau State by its President, Melvin Ejeh and Secretary, Kabiru Adamu Muhammed.

The group while reacting to media reports which quoted Dr. Junaid Mohammed as saying there will be mayhem if President Jonathan rigs the 2015 polls, described it as a provocative statement capable of “undermining the fragile peace in the North and Nigeria at large”.

According to the group, “We view this statement not only as inciting, but reckless and senseless, though, we are not surprised because recent happenings have shown that Dr. Junaid Mohammed is a religious bigot who does not see beyond his bedroom, and would do everything to frustrate anything that’s not within his immediate benefit.

“We wonder what Dr. Junaid and his cohorts intend to achieve by trying to further divide the North instead of doing everything possible to unite us.

“We further wonder what stake he has in the North to dictate to General Onoja and co on the candidate to support in 2015 presidential election. Don’t Gen. Onoja and everybody in the North has (sic) the right of choice?” the group asked.

To this end, the group said, “We urge the Inspector General not to undermine the statement, but to arrest and investigate Dr. Junaid, because statements like this, made by some of his close associates in 2010 before PDP Presidential primaries, militarized Boko Haram and heightened the insecurity in the north today”.
