The suspect, Mr Obiajulu Uja who was arrested on Friday at the Abuja Airport over anti-Tinubu comments was said to be mentally deranged.


His lawyer Barr. Ejike Ugwu told Daily Post in an exclusive interview on Saturday that Obiajulu is mentally challenged.


The man who hails from Oji-River Local Government Area of Enugu State was arrested while saying that the president-elect, Bola Tinubu must be prevented from being swore-in..


His lawyer, Barr. Ejike Ugwu told DAILY POST in an interview on Saturday that Obiajulu is mentally challenged.


Ugwu, who said he was at the Airport Police Division to see the suspect, said the police were yet to avail the suspect with medical care despite his bad condition.


“Obiajulu is not in the right state of mind; before he boarded the flight, he was chased away from a hotel in Abuja because of his mental state.


“He even booked three different flights for the Lagos trip. He booked Aero, Dana and Ibom Air. He had the three tickets for the same trip. So, there is no doubt that he is mentally challenged,” Ugwu said.


However, the lawyer said the police was yet to listen to his plea to allow the suspect access to medical care.


“As I speak to you, both the IPO handling the case and the DPO of the Police Division are nowhere to be found. And the suspect’s legs are all swollen now because of the several beatings he received at the Airport. He is critically sick right now.


“All I am asking for is that he should at least be taken to the police clinic.


“I have also made efforts to reach the Force PRO but he did not take my calls,” he added.


It was learnt that call put across to the police Spokesman, Olumuyiwa Adejobi has not been answered.


Recall Obiajulu was arrested on board a Lagos bound flight after he had delayed take-off for nearly one hour.


In a trending video, he could be heard shouting, “Obidients you’re here. They are doing this to me. Obidients you’re here, I am naked. Obidients you’re here, I am going naked.”
