Former Minister of Aviation, Chief Fani-Kayode has promised an N1 million reward to anyone with evidence that Donald Trump incited people before last Wednesday’s march on the US Capitol.
The outspoken minister made this known in a tweet on Wednesday, January 12.
Five people were killed when pro-Trump supporters stormed the Capital Building as Congress met to certify the Electoral College votes for President-elect Joe Biden, amid claims by President Donald Trump that the elections were rigged, Gistmania reports.
The victims were later identified as Brian Sicknick, Ashli Babbitt, Kevin Greeson, Rosanne Boyland and Benjamin Philips.
Minutes before the Capitol invasion, the President held a rally in which he told supporters to “stand strong for the integrity of our elections” and to “save our democracy”.
President Trump also told his supporters to converge on Congress “peacefully and patriotically”.
However, many Democrats have blamed him for the invasion, which has been described as the “most dramatic challenge to the US democratic system since the civil war“.
The House of Representatives on Monday introduced an Article of Impeachment against President Trump Monday, accusing him of “inciting an insurrection“.
Reacting, Fani-Kayode defended the American President, saying he was not responsible for the invasion and dared anyone with contrary evidence to step forward.
See tweet: "If anyone can show me a video of Donald Trump saying anything to incite people to violence on the day of or the day before the protest at the Congress or if they can send me a video of where he specifically called for violence I will send that person 1 million naira."
