APC wants international inquiry into assassination attempt on Buhari

APC says the Nigerian Government is incapable of carrying out an impartial investigation.

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has called for an international inquiry to unravel the motive and the perpetrators of Wednesday’s assassination attempt on its leader, Muhammadu Buhari.

Mr. Buhari survived an attempt on his life when a suicide bomber trailed his motorcade and detonated his bomb-laden vehicle.

In a statement in Benin on Sunday by its National Chairman, John Oyegun, the party said it does not have the confidence that the Nigerian security agencies can carry out an impartial investigation, because they work for the government instead of the nation.

“How does one explain a situation in which a man who is nothing but a pervert is now being paraded as the suspected ‘mastermind’ of the attack on Gen. Buhari? At what point was this man, who perhaps is nothing but a transvestite plying his trade, arrested? Is it not clear, from the statement released by Gen. Buhari himself after the attack, that it was clearly the handiwork of a suicide bomber?

“Could the person who drove the vehicle that was rammed into the General’s convoy have survived the explosion that was triggered by that action? Could the innocent passers-by who died in the blast not have been arrested and paraded as the ‘suspected masterminds’ if they had survived the blast? Clearly, the arrest of the pervert and his sickening description as a ‘suspected mastermind’ have kick-started the process of muddling the waters, as is usually the case with such high-profile cases.

“This is why an urgent international inquiry into the attack is desirable and imperative, and anyone who is committed to an impartial probe of the attack on the opposition leader should embrace our call,” the APC said, adding that the insurgency and its spin-offs were now clearly beyond the capability of this Federal Government.

The party also said its call is justified by the statements and insinuations emanating from the ruling PDP and the presidency, both of which now seem to be pointing accusing fingers at the APC as being behind the assassination attempt on one of its top leaders.

”We are indeed in very interesting times, times that remind one of the failed attempt by the administration of the late military dictator, Gen. Abacha, to blame pro-democracy group NADECO for the series of deadly attacks on pro-democracy activists during the tenur of the administration.

”But we are confident that just as the truth about those who perpetrated those attacks was eventually revealed, the masterminds of the failed assassination attempt on our leader will definitely be exposed sooner than later, whether or not the government agrees to our call for an international inquiry,” the party said.

    The Janjaweed wants an “INTERNATIONAL INQUIRY”. Yes indeed Buhari is an international man, and we know what he is known for internationally.


      Janjaweed. Islamic Party. That’s all you say. Can you engage this party called APC on issues that will benefit Nigerians or get off this forum?

    APC must be ignored ………. the world knows that APC are the ones staging the bombs in a failed attempt to hoodwink and deceive the undiscerning !!!

    APC’s enthusiastic use of Boko Haram as veritable and potent tool for winning elections and gaining political power stands condemned by Nigerians and the International Community.

    No international investigations are needed ……. all that is needed is the proscription and abolition of APC as a political party in Nigeria followed by the arrest and prosecution of APC leaders for heinous crimes against humanity including terrorism, bombs detonation, mass murder, rape of women and underage girls, arson and child abuse amongst many other crimes.

      You guys that fail to see beyond politics or ethnic sentiments are simpletons and nothing more!


      How did Nigeria come to be populated by your likes? How far will ethnic hatred and religious bigotry take you? What ever happens to logic in arguments? You are a saddening specie of homo sapien!

    Jonathan will definitely destroy or try as much as possible to destroy this country. Abacha however tried but failed and so will Jonathan and his appendages.

    If the PDP could describe the attack that took over 80 innocent lives as stage managed, it goes the distance in proving beyond reasonable doubt that this Govt. cannot be trusted to conduct an unbiased investigation into the assault. When they paraded a transvestite (dan daudu), I noticed the unusual speed in the arrest must be aimed at muddling up the failed assassination, never have Nigerian security operatives arrested a suspect faster than now. OBJ was right with his snipers’ squad and watch list of perceived enemies, the panel charged with investigating those serious allegations in his letter never published their report, swept it under the rug as usual. Dumbo is a jinx and bad omen, the worst curse on Nigeria. Late Gen. Azazi accused the PDP of politics of exclusion and unduly profiting from insecurity spurred by this Boko Haram insurgency, their desperation to remain in power will sink Nigeria and Dumbo will be held responsible consciously or otherwise. Time to get rid of those sycophants giving him bad advise is now…

    The failed attempt on General M.Buhari’s life was sponsored and orchestrated by PDP president Ebele Jonathan and his criminal PDP-Haram goons.There is no smoke without fire and it was PDP president Jonathan’s trade-mark in order to decimate APC before 2015 general elections.
