Just as President Mohammadu Buhari embarked on a peace mission in Mali, Mohammad Tawhidi, an Iranian-born Australia-based Islamic cleric, popularly called Imam of Peace has led a social media call for the arrest of the Nigerian President. 

The call, which has taken priority trend on Twitter with a volume of over fifty-eight thousand tweets at the moment, recorded the presence of diverse individuals across the globe protesting for Buhari’s immediate arrest.

Imam of Peace, as popularly referred, had triggered the call in a tweet early hours of Saturday, 25 July 2020 urging the general public, mostly his followers to join the call to apprehend the Buhari over his resolve to rehabilitate and reintegrate repentant Boko Haram Terrorists when their victims languish in various Internally Displaced Centers.

Major General Bamidele Shafa, the Coordinator of Operation Safe Corridor, had earlier disclosed on Saturday 25 July 2020 the reintegration of six hundred one ex-Boko Haram militants.

Shafa, who at the DRR Camp in Mallam Sidi, Gombe State noted that the exercise is a unique non-kinetic operation geared towards giving hope to ex-combatants, who willingly give up their arms to embrace peace.

Some Lawmakers had earlier condemned the rehabilitation exercise by the federal government, citing it illogical since their war against innocent citizens is still on including their victims which in their numbers needs assistance to go back to their various communities from IDP camps.

Senator Ali Ndemu during one of his briefings with Newsmen lamented against the ongoing operation said giving the repentant fighters amnesty and start-up money is unacceptable following their unabated bloody activities on Nigerians.

Shedding more light on the reason Buhari should be arrested, Tawhidi said the APC Party leader, Buhari should not only be arrested for corruption levied against by PDP but also be charged for supporting what he referred as ‘Fulani Cult and in a deal with Boko Haram Jihadists despite killing of thousands in Nigeria in 2020 alone.

Tawhidi’s anger was traced to be triggered by APC’s reply to call by PDP for Buhari’s resignation over corruption.

He had tweeted earlier to express his dissatisfaction over APC response before sponsoring a call for Buhari’s arrest early today.

However, in separate tweets, other Nigerians joined the protest, expressed concern why the President needed to be put behind bars and halt the Boko Haram amnesty exercise.

Reno Omokri (@Reno Omokri) outlined lapse on the side of the President, said Buhari failed to evacuate Nigerians from South Africa during the xenophobic attacks but was quick to send a plane to Niger to repatriate the terrorists.

He further questioned why Buhari would stop 2020 WAEC exercise “yet Buhari kept Boko Haram’s so-called de-radicalization school opened. Children of law-abiding tax-paying citizens cant graduate. But Boko Haram can! Will you accept this?”

Another twitter client from India, @BJPYogeshShukla pleaded for the general public to join him in calling for Nigerian President arrest, declared hos support.
