Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has reportedly ripped apart his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) membership card.

One of Nigeria's biggest publications, Punch Newspaper published the report today, February 16, 2015, promising to give details on the said incident.

This latest incident occurs just days after Obasanjo accused President Goodluck Jonathan of plotting to frustrate the conduct of the upcoming general elections.

The former President also stated that Jonathan, who is of the PDP, was afraid that he would be jailed by All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Muhammadu Buhari if the latter were to win the elections.

Obasanjo has also accused the President of squandering Nigeria's oil savings and in his controversial autobiography described Jonathan as callous and selfish.

The former President also recently threw his weight behind Buhari's Presidential ambition stating that he has every reason to support the APC candidate.

Obasanjo had earlier stated that he would always be a member of the PDP regardless of his criticisms of Jonathan and his administration.

Details of where and why Obasanjo tore the card are however still sketchy.

Story developing.
