Police Arrest Man Who Climbed Billboard Hanger 'Because Of Buhari'

Lawan Faro, the middle-aged man in Yola, capital of Adamawa State, who climbed a 40 metre-high billboard hanger and threatened to fall off unless President Muhammadu Buhari resigns within 12 hours, has been arrested by the Police, SaharaReporters reports.

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.

"They had a car parked waiting to take me to Atiku's house, but unfortunately it was a trick because here I am, they brought me to Jimeta Police Station.

“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.”
