Lawan Faro, the man who climbed the billboard hanger in Yola yesterday, with threats to jump to his death if President Buhari fails to resign, has been arrested by the Adamawa State Police Command.
Lawan said he would commit suicide if Buhari does not vacate the seat for Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate.
He was reportedly lured by the Police to come down from the Billboard hanger with the promise that he would be taken to house of the PDP Presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, but was instead taking to the Police Station upon his arrest.
Speaking after his arrest, Lawan said
”At about 8:00pm, some soldiers came by in company of some people who claimed that former Vice President Atiku Abubakar was waiting for me, so I was convinced and I came down.
They had a car parked waiting to take me to Atiku’s house, but unfortunately it was a trick because here I am, they brought me to Jimeta Police Station. But make no mistake about my demand; the moment I regain my freedom, I’ll be heading to a taller object, possibly a telecommunications mast, to carry out my threat.”
