“Nigeria Police Force has just arrested Marshal Abubakar a lawyer attached to Femi Falana Chambers in Abuja for defending me during my recent spat with the police and so called “Billionairë” Ned Nwoko. Marshal D F Abubakar was traced to his home and forcefully arrested because he was accused of defending me. They claimed that he embarrassed the @police by suing them and Ned Nwoko on my behalf”
“We have sued @Prince_NedNwoko and duely served him and @PoliceNG but the despicable hierarchy of the police that had made itself available for Ned Nwoko’s repressive criminal activities for a fee are hell bent on perdition.” He tweeted.
