The prime suspect has been identified as Mike Oluwole, a 52-year-old Abuja-based graphics designer from Osun state.
The Osinbajo Support Movement (OSM) has revealed it knows the group behind the 'Judas who betrayed his master' poster of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
According to Legit Nigeria, OSM alleged that a Tinubu campaign team sponsored the blasphemous poster campaign against Professor Yemi Osinbajo, in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) during the Easter period.
A statement by Adejuwon Babatunde, director of media and publicity of the OSM, claimed that telephone chats and call logs of a suspect arrested by security agencies indicate that the Tinubu campaign team was responsible for the posting of blasphemous posters.
The statement noted that though the prime suspect, Mike Oluwole, a 52-year-old Abuja-based graphics designer from Osun state, denied working for the Tinubu campaign team, records of his phone chats with a member of the team, contradicted his statement to the police.
According to security agents quoted in the statement, Oluwole denied working with anyone and attributed his actions to frustration.
But records of his phone chats with one Alhaji Aminu Suleiman and one Tosin Adeyanju from the Tinubu media group, dated Thursday, March 24, and Tuesday, April 12 revealed the involvement of the campaign team in the despicable act.
The OSM stated: “The exchanges between Mr. Oluwole and the other persons contradict his claims that he wasn’t working for anyone including Tinubu supporters.
“The action by Tinubu’s supporters has exposed the desperation of the Vice President’s political opponents and the apprehension in their camp over Osinbajo’s increasing popularity and wide acceptability by Nigerians.
“We urge the VP not to be distracted as the race for the 2023 elections intensifies. Nigerians however need to be vigilant and beware of the antics of those who do not mean well for our country, and who are deploying desperate strategies in an abortive attempt to revive a failing campaign.”
