The Lagos monarch who apparently is backing Buhari’s election in an interview with Punch hit out at opposition to the President’s second term aspiration, particularly former President Obasanjo.

“You see, all those that are antagonising him, all the monies they have stolen would be retrieved from them. Like I have told you, the moment he wins the election, he should close the border so that Obasanjo won’t escape.

“Obasanjo should change his ways. An adage says that a deity that we try every possible thing to put in a place of honour that defies all such gestures would expose itself to ridicule at the end of the day. Another adage says that a cat ends up in the well for thinking it can jump from any point to another without caution,” Akiolu told the paper.
