Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said the Federal Government will not interfere if any security agency decides to probe former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Osinabjo said this on Friday, October 28, 2016, in Houston, at a meeting with Nigerians living in the US.

The VP’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, in a statement said “Answering a question from the Internet on when former President Jonathan would be arrested, Osinbajo pointed out that the Buhari administration was not in the business of arresting people anyhow.

“He said all the Buhari administration did was to empower the security agencies and the anti-corruption agencies to do their jobs, without the administration trying to teleguide (monitor) them,”

Adding that “Corruption is not an ethnic thing, there is an equal representation in the stealing as no one operates with his or her ethnic group alone, the culprits are in every case seen so far, united by greed to steal and not by ethnic or religious interest.”

Osinbajo also revealed that 800 suspected Fulani herdsmen have been arrested across the Nigeria by security agencies.

Is it a good idea for the anti-graft agencies to probe Goodluck Jonathan?»
