Faro is currently being held in custody at the Jimeta Division of the Nigeria Police in Yola.
"At about 8:00pm, some soldiers came by in company of some people who claimed that former Vice President Atiku Abubakar was waiting for me, so I was convinced and I came down,” he told SaharaReporters.
“But make no mistake about my demand; the moment I regain my freedom, I'll be heading to a taller object, possibly a telecommunications mast, to carry out my threat.”
Speaking with SaharaReporters earlier in the day, Faro had said his action was necessitated by the "extreme poverty" in the land.
"I think it’s time for Buhari to give way for someone like Atiku Abubakar to lead us out of the present hardship," he had said.
"I will remain here for 12 hours to show my discontent, and someone not less than Atiku must come here to assure me that this government must be sacked in the forthcoming election.” SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
