Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has claimed that world powers told President Muhammadu Buhari to arrest some prominent Nigerians in his government. The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain said this in an essay he released on Monday titled ‘The desperate agenda of an evil tyrant’, disclosing that the president was equally advised to rest his decision to run in the 2019 election.
Fani-Kayode wrote: “Key players and leaders in the international community have warned President Muhammadu Buhari not to run for a second term but he has refused to listen.

He has resolved to break them, humiliate them and teach them the lesson of their lives.
“And those of us that have been on the receiving end of their cruelty for the last three years will not be left out. “He has more plans for this writer as well as others like Olisa Metuh, Sambo Dasuki, El Zak Zaky, Nnamdi Kanu and all his other traducers and critics. “I gathered that even Church leaders and clerics like Bishop David Oyedepo, Apostle Suleman, Bishop El Buba and others have been marked down for persecution and destruction whilst visible and loud players, commentators, writers, politicians and activists like Senator Ben Murray-Bruce,
