Activist and publisher, Omoyele Sowore has lambasted former Nigerian military leader Ibrahim Babangida, describing him as a hypocrite who caused the death of young people.
Sowore said it is hypocritical for the former military dictator to now be calling for youths to lead in Nigeria.
The activist referred to Babangida, also known IBB, as a “hater of democracy”, “a murderer” and a ”thief” who should be in prison.
“Conman, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (IBB) killed students, killed Dele Giwa, killed Mamman Vasta, killed Gideon Orkar, killed a generation of young army officers in a plane crash so they won’t reach their prime, now he’s blabbing about the quest for a younger generation to lead.
“A hater of democracy, a murderer, a thief and dissembler, who should be in prison but here we are with one of these blockheads just running his mouth and getting undue airtime! #RevolutionNow.”
Sowore’s reaction followed Babangida’s interview with Arise TV on Friday, where the former military dictator suggested that individuals in their 60s should be the focus of Nigerians as potential presidential candidates in 2023.
