Timi Frank warns DSS against alleged plot to arrest Emefiele

Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, has called the Department of State Services (DSS) to urgently halt the alleged plot to arrest and force the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele out of office.

Frank, reacting to allegations made by the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) in a statement issued Tuesday, said such Gestapo tactics employed by the DSS against Judges of the Federal High Court and Supreme Court in the past must be condemned by all well-meaning Nigerians.

He stressed that Emefiele had suddenly become a persona non-grata, obviously because of his recent policy on the redesigning of the Naira, not minding that this policy was to help fight corruption and looting that has become endemic under the APC administration.

Frank, who is the United Liberation Movement for West Papua (ULMWP) Ambassador to East Africa and the Middle East, alleged that members of the government are part of the plot.

Against this background, he called on President Muhammadu Buhari to call the DSS and other conniving officials to order.

Frank said: “Let us not allow the kind of kangaroo and commando-styled Operation by the DSS that was used to remove a former Chief Justice of Nigeria in the recent past.”

He, therefore, called on all well-meaning Nigerians to resist a repeat of this type of injustice and inhumanity in the nation.

Frank insisted that If any government official has been found to violate certain aspects of the laws, the rule of law should be followed in redressing any such infraction.

He queried: “Why would any group of people want to remove someone who is trying his best to give some sort of credence to this government – that has failed in all aspects of good governance – It is not only sad but an attempt to worsen the current situation that we are in as a country.

“Is the government trying to play an ethnic card? This brings to mind, what happened to the former Chief Justice Of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen and the former Acting DG of the Department of State Services, Seiyefa -Both were removed unceremoniously.

“Many key people under this government have been said to have purportedly committed various illegalities and none has been treated like the way Emefiele is being treated. I will never fold my hands and watch when injustice is being perpetuated against any Nigerian.”

Frank added that the current government knows it cannot win any election except through vote buying; hence, Emefiele was no longer in their good books.

He cautioned the DSS and their cohorts in government to desist from this illegality for which they had purportedly ‘procured’ an illegal court order to mask their sinister intentions.
