Russia-trained medical doctor and radical Northern Nigeria politician, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, this morning on a radio show in Abuja said that for his acts of insincerity and dishonesty in Aso Rock, former President Olusegun Obasanjo once beat up Dr. Doyin Okupe, who is now President Goodluck Jonathan’s defender-in-chief.
He also hit at Jonathan’s political adviser, Ahmed Gulak, whom he dismissed as a desperate and illogical politician sailing on the capsized boat of a failed presidency. “I was there when President Olusegun Obasanjo physically beat and assaulted him because of his attitude and lack of honesty,” he said of Okupe.
“I was also there when Chief of Staff to Obasanjo, Maj.Gen. Mohammed called him and scolded him because of his behaviour. And the same character is today entering what he doesn’t know, is a PR practitioner? Is he a journalist?”
Mohammed further described Okupe as “shameless,” adding that he has ignorantly been defending President Jonathan without being privy to the reality of Jonathan’s atrocities, as a result of which Okupe will continue to face morality and credibility challenges. “I know how he kept troubling Obasanjo and he was given the job, later on he showed his [true] colours and was kicked-out…He is busy doing harm again to his remaining person.
Even Gulak with his proud moustache is doing same, shamelessly because of Jonathan.” When the moderator asked Junaid, what did Okupe did to defend himself when Obasanjo was beating him up, Mohammed responded, “What would he do? Do you know who were there? There were deluges of security operatives, no matter [his being] younger than Obasanjo, he could not help himself but just received the beatings.”
He challenged Okupe to deny his account. “I was there and saw it, let him come out and deny it, let’s see.”
