Malele Paulo popularly known as ‘King Faipopo’ on Facebook has challenged Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi to “come and get me.”

Responding to a statement issued last week by the Office of the Prime Minister for the authorities to begin the process to bring him back to Samoa, Malele said he is not afraid of the actions taken by the Prime Minister. 

“I ain’t scared of anyone on this earth Tuilaepa Sailele. Don’t try and scare me because I am not afraid of you and I have said it so many times I am only scared of God.

“I have apologised to the country but you did not reply to my apology. I apologise to the country not you and you did not respond.

“You said the police will come and arrest King Faipopo so come and get me I am waiting,” he said in a video, which was sent to Samoa Observer. 

Malele said he is also ready to face the Prime Minister in court. 

“I only ask God for my forgiveness. I’m not hiding but Tuilaepa come and get me. Whether you are not happy or angry but the truth hurts and I am ready to come Tuilaepa, send me those police or you come with your government and handcuff my hands and let’s go.”

The Prime Minister, in a statement last week, said he has directed the Office of the Attorney General and the police to begin the process to extradite Malele from Australia.
