Security agents attached to former Vice President and presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar yesterday harassed reporters and flung away microphones and other broadcast equipment in Kaduna.
Daily Trust reports that Atiku arrived at the PDP headquarters in Kaduna at 6:30 pm to a mammoth crowd of supporters.
Shortly after addressing delegates, the presidential aspirant had stepped out to find a group of broadcast journalists stationed to interview him but his security team had stepped in to shove journalists while snatching and flinging microphones away.
Our correspondent reports that the incident occurred just 24 hours after the former vice president’s security team harassed journalists in Jos, the Plateau State capital and damaged their working tools.
However, while addressing the delegates, Atiku said he was the right man to secure the country and assured that if elected as the party’s flagbearer, he will defeat the All Progressives Congress, which he said had taken the nation decades backwards.
Atiku also promised to tackle the present impasse between the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the federal government stressing that ASUU strike will be a thing of the past.
