Former minis­ter of Federal Capital Terri­tory and Deputy National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mal­lam Nasir el-Rufai, said the withdrawal of the security details at­tached to Speaker of the House of Represen­tatives, Aminu Tambu­wal, was a plot by the Federal Government to eliminate him.

The former minister, who accused President Goodluck Jonathan of masterminding the removal of Tambuwal security aides, alleged that the Speaker was one of the targets of snipers being pur­portedly groomed by the President.

Disclosing this to news­men shortly after picking his expression of interest and nomination forms as the APC governorship aspirant in Kaduna State on Friday, the former minister, insisted that the Speaker was one of the targets of the killer squad, declaring, “that was why the Inspector-General of Police on the order of President Jonathan with­drew the Speaker security aides.”

While warning that no harm must befall the Speak­er, the former minister noted that it was irresponsible on the part of the Inspector- General of Police and the Federal Government to have withdrawn the security de­tails of the Speaker.

The former minister ex­plained that withdrawal was done deliberately so as to pave way for the “killer squad” to exterminate the Speaker for cross carpeting to APC.

According to el-Rufai, the removal of the Speaker’s security was part of the con­tinuation of the President Jonathan’s Federal Govern­ment led penchant for im­punity.

The former minister, how­ever, reminded the Jonathan government that impunity had limitations, saying that the Nigeria government should learn from Burkina Faso, when the people were fed up with the government.
