On Friday evening, an unidentified man was carried off an Abuja to Lagos flight.
The lone middle-aged protester was said to have declared that President-elect Bola Tinubu should not be sworn in as President on May 29.
According to the video that made it way online, it took the efforts of no fewer than six airport security officers to evacuate him after he had been stuck on the plane for more than an hour, as the 6pm flight had yet to take off as of 7pm.
As he was being carried down the aisle, the man could be heard shouting, “Obidients you’re here. They are doing this to me. Obidients you’re here, I am naked. Obidients you’re here, I am going naked.”
No one could approach him because officials from the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria and Ibom Air surrounded him.
WITHIN NIGERIA reported on Thursday that the Department of State Services had identified some unnamed key players planning for an interim government in the country.
Describing the plan as an aberration, the DSS said such would undermine civil rule as well as plunge the country into an avoidable crisis.
This was contained in a statement by the spokesperson for the service, Peter Afunanya.
However, the 36 state governors under the aegis of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum Friday requested the DSS to as a matter of urgency arrest and prosecute those involved in the plot to put in place an interim government as a replacement for the nation’s democratic system.
The NGF also warned the DSS against issuing statements without arrest, noting that such could lead to heating up the polity.
This was disclosed in a statement released by the forum’s Chairman and Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, on Friday.
