If I talk about Nigeria, nobody’ll sleep again – Danjuma


A former Minister of Defence, retired General Theophilus Danjuma, has spoken of alleged privileged information at his disposal which if he spilled would make Nigerians unable to sleep.

Danjuma stated this on Thursday at the University of Ibadan during the launch of a book, 70 Years of Progressive Journalism: The Story of the Nigerian Tribune and the presentation of Tribune’s Platinum Awards.

Raising concern about the state of the nation, the former minister said he was in the know of ostensibly despicable happenings that are capable of bringing the country to its knee and would not divulge them publicly but in private to Afenifere leader, Chief Ayo Adebanjo.

He said: “In Yorubaland, everybody seems to have lost their voice, scared. And people appear not to care about what is happening. If I tell you what I know that is happening in Nigeria today, you will no longer sleep.

“So, Chief Ayo Adebanjo’s warning and advice is very timely. If you want details, I will give it to you privately.

“We are in a big hole as nation. And people who put us in this hole have continued today. So, we’ve to wake up. Only we can save ourselves. “The fifth columnists’ activities going on among your people are not helping matters. May Almighty God continue to bless this country, but only we can save ourselves from ourselves.”
