‘Jaga Jaga’ crooner, Eedris Abdulkareem has reacted to blackmail allegations levelled against his person by the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo.
Recall that Festus Kenyamo, had taken to Twitter to call out the former Remedies band member Eeedris Abdulkareem over his alleged fraudulent activities.
Keyamo who scribbled a long thread on his official Twitter handle on Saturday, April 24, sharing screenshots of text messages between him and the musician, revealed that Eedris who now condemns President Muhammed Buhari wanted to join the president’s campaign train 2018.
According to Keyamo who said that he was the director of strategic communications for the campaign in 2018, the musician released a song to support the president’s second term and asked to listen to it.
Keyamo said that he told Eedris there was no financial budget to bring him, adding that his job as a coordinator was on a voluntary basis.
Festus went ahead to say that he begged him that he needed N3 million to pay for his hotel and that his mother was sick too.
The minister said after finding out that the musician had told people different stories with the aim of getting money from them, he stopped seeing him.
Reacting to the claims by Festus Keyamo, Eedris Abdulkareem Kareem said in 2018 that he looked up to Keyamo as a brother and a comrade who loved Nigeria and demanded for money because his mother was dying.
His post read: “Did Festus Keyamo join the cabal or not?
“When he was in prison, I stood by him, I fought Obasanjo on behalf of all the comrades in prison, I released Jagajaga.
“When my mother was dying, I reached out to a brother, or the one I thought was a brother and a comrade. Could he have helped? Yes, did he help? No. Such was the wickedness of Keyamo’s heart that he munched and kept personal details for three years. Real Hallmark of a Blackmailer!
“In 2018, I still thought the man was a comrade who could effect a change in the government he served. Then he joined the cabal, he became an inner caucus and held the steering wheel spiralling Nigeria into doom.
“He joined to crush the revolution of the youths, he joined the cabal. The cabal which mowed down our youths at LEKKI TOLL GATE.
“With a vexed spirit, I went again to the studio for “Jagajaga Reloaded” and the Blackmailer went to town. “The cabal is awoken. The cabal is hit. The cabal is in pain. The cabal is failing. The cabal will fall.
“The Blackmailer said I recorded a song for Buhari. The said song is titled: “Obasanjo Write Buhari Letter”. Here is the link to that song, listen and you will phantom the deviousness and dubiousness of the evil SAN (Senior Advocate Blackmailer of Nigeria) called Festus Keyamo, ” Eedris said.
The musician went ahead to admonish Nigerians not to be threatened but to keep asking questions about the state of the nation.
“Issues raised on Jagajaga Reloaded are facts. Nigeria never had it so bad. The Jagajaga has taken a gargantuan dimension. We must keep asking questions. We must ask the cabal questions,” the singer added.
