The police have invited social media influencer Pamilerin Adegoke for questioning over a post he purportedly tweeted against a staunch supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Adegoke was invited over something he allegedly tweeted against Iyabo Awokoya, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Awokoya had earlier in a tweet promised to deal with Adegoke, who tweets via @UnclePamilerin and goes by the moniker Dr Pam Pam, over the said post.
“Is there anyone who please who knows Dr Pam Pam personally and knows his telephone number. I need to make an example of someone,” she had tweeted.
According to a letter dated March 4 and signed by the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Fayoade Adegoke, Adegoke was asked to report at the State Criminal Investigation Department in Yaba on March 09, 2021.
“This office is investigating a case in which your attention is needed to facilitate and bring the matter to a logical conclusion,” the letter read.
“You are hereby requested for interview by the Deputy Commissioner of Police, State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba, Lagos, on 9th March, 2021 at 10:00am, through the O/C D8 Section with phone No. 081233*****,” the letter read.
Reacting to the invitation, Adegoke tweeted:
“I’ve been invited by the Nigeria Police via the State CID, Panti, Lagos, to answer questions regarding an undisclosed issue.
“Recall that Iyabo Awokoya had vowed to instigate the police against me. I’ve been advised by my lawyer Inibehe Effiong not to react further.”
