PEOPLES Democratic Party, PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, PDPPCO alleged Sunday that the All Progressives Congress, APC spent N5 billion for the appearance of its Presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, rtd at the Chatham House in London last Thursday, just as it described it as a jamboree and monumental failure and that the Federal Government has concluded arrangements and may soon drag General Buhari before the International Criminal Court.
Addressing Journalists in Abuja Sunday, Director, Media and Publicity of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Chief Femi Fani- Kayode disclosed that the Federal Government has concluded arrangements and may soon drag General Buhari before the International Criminal Court, ICC over the 2011 Electoral violence in the country to face alleged charges of human rights abuses and criminality, just as he urged Buhari to get prepared for the trial after the elections.
According to him, the government would first demystify Buhari by defeating him at the polls before dragging him to the ICC against the backdrop that it will be risky to arrest him now over the 2011 violence as it would raise dust, adding, “And after its and General Buhari’s rejection at the poll, General Buhari may have to prepare to face charges of human rights abuses and criminality filed against him before the International Criminal Court on account of the 2011 electoral violence in Nigeria.
“According to the African Herald Express report on the issue published on February 20, 2015, Dutch lawyers– Prakken d’Oliveira, a Human Rights Law Firm based in Amsterdam, said it had filed a criminal complaint against General Muhammadu Buhari at the ICC. Prakken d’ Oliveira, led by Prof. Sluiter, Lawyer and Partner, is said to be acting on behalf of the Nigerian Northern Coalition for Democracy and Justice and two individual victims.
“Indeed, international focus is on General Buhari for the 2011 post-election violence and we hope that he is brought to justice for the blood that was shed by his supporters in the violence of 2011; and, we hope he will not precipitate another round of violence in 2015 when he loses.”
PDP noted that the Chatham House event was an arrangee designed by the APC like the purported London interview to hoodwink Nigerians and prevent the APC Presidential candidate from debating in Nigeria, just as it insisted that General Buhari must debate in Nigeria, adding that he was not originally scheduled to appear at the Chatham as it was a last minute arrangement, aimed at diverting the attention of Nigerians and the world from the fact that the trip to London was mainly to seek medical attention and care

Some thugs in Gombe state have attacked Abdullahi Mohammed, a former Special Assistant on Security Matters to Governor Hassan Dankwambo.
Mr. Mohammed said that he was attacked Saturday by a three-man gang at a car wash spot on the outskirts of Gombe metropolis.
He suspected the attackers to be supporters of the state governor.
“I was attacked by a group of hoodlums numbering three who accosted me at a car wash near Buba Shongo along Bauchi road in Gombe,” Mr. Mohammed said.
“While they were hitting me, one of them was shouting on top of his voice saying, “Why must you antagonize the Governor (Dankwambo)”. It was then I realized their mission! They drove in a car with registration number BLG 142 AA.”
Mr. Mohammed recently tore his PDP membership card and defected to the opposition All Progressives Congress.
He said his decision to defect was due to the lack of internal democracy in the fold.
 Mr. Mohammed accused Mr. Dankwambo of plotting to assassinate him, saying such attacks could not frighten or force him to rescind his decision.
“If I have to pay the supreme price for my people to gain succour, so be it,” he said. “I decamped to the APC and there is no going back.
“If his Excellency feels killing me is what will return him to office come April 11, the masses will decide his fate even after my demise,” he said.
No time for likes of Mohammed
When contacted, the spokesperson of Governor Dankwambo, Junaidu Abubakar, said Governor Dankwambo cannot stoop low to order an attack on one of his own.
Mr. Abubakar said everyone who interacts with the governor knows that he abhors violence and maintains peaceful disposition to his politicking.
The governors spokesperson said only the APC is synonymous with violence in the state and that thugs belonging to the party may have carried out the attack.
“The allegations are baseless and unfounded. The APC in Gombe state are synonymous with thuggery. Governor Dankwambo is a man who never believes in political thuggery and the world can attest to that
He does not even know that Abdullahi Mohammed has decamped to the APC not to talk of ordering an attack on him,” he said.
He said it was in a bid to fight political thuggery in the state that the governor banned the Kalare group and rehabilitated those of them who renounce violence.
The governor’s spokesperson also accused APC leaders of still retaining the sevice of some of the thugs who he said are being used to unleash violence on the citizenry.
“The world knows that the APC leader in Gombe state Danjuma Goje is also the leader of Kalare group,” Mr. Abubakar said.
“They have killed over 200 people while he was the governor, but Governor Dankwambo cannot even hurt a fly.”

He said, It is not Femi Fani-Kayode but rather Bola Tinubu that slurs when he speaks. It is not Femi Fani-Kayode but Bola Tinubu that has to take 20 pills before he can speak.
“It is not Femi Fani-Kayode but Bola Tinubu that his hands shakes when he tries to eat and lifts a fork and knife. it is not me, It is not Femi Fani-Kayode that his breath is so bad, it is so bad enough to knock off the beard. It is not Femi Fani-Kayode. So, if anybody is to talk about ill health. They should talk about themselves and not about me.
“My name is Femi Fani-Kayode, and nobody can Kill me before my time. Nobody can cut me short and I habour no fear of violence and I do not take threats lightly. Neither do I fear for my life.
“Because I have never shed blood and I do not believe in violence, the angel of the Lord will strike that person dead before they point a gun at me in Jesus Name.”
