Babatunde Gbadamosi, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the recently held Lagos East senatorial election, has called on the Federal Government to arrest all Ugandan nations residing in Nigeria.
Gbadamosi made the call in a post on Twitter on Tuesday following the arrest and detention of Nigerian singers Stanley Omah Didia, aka Omah Lay; Temilade Openyi aka Tems; as well as Muyiwa Awomiyi, in the East African country.
Both Omah Lay and Tems were arrested alongside Awomiyi by the Uganda Police Force for flouting COVID-19 guidelines.
They were arrested after their performances at The Big Brunch, which held at Speke Resort, Wavamunno Road, Kampala, the country’s capital.
According to Gbadamosi, no Ugandan should be walking free in the country currently while the two Nigerian singers are still under arrest in Uganda.
Gbadamosi’s tweet elicited a series of diverse reaction, with most Twitter users accusing him of trying to instigate a diplomatic row between both countries.

Both Omah Lay and Tems have been remanded in prison pending a court case.
