Buhari's Bodyguards and Police Set to Clash
The Inspector General of Police has directed the Commissioner of Police, FCT, Abuja to deploy mobile policemen to the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Office in Abuja, venue of the planned protest by former bodyguards to President Muhammadu Buhari who participated during the 2015 presidential campaigns.
The Spokesperson of the group of Presidential Bodyguards during the 2015 Presidential Election, Badiru Olabiyi Balogun, on Thursday gave a directive to his members to converge for a protest to the APC National Secretariat. He further informed the media that his group will go ahead with the protest.
He said, Two truck loads of mobile policemen have been deployed to our campaign office. They said the instruction was that they should not allow us access to the office and that the people outside should not be allowed to go in. So, we are meeting there by 9:00 am this morning.
It was reported , that the same group, last week had protested against their “exclusion” by those they described “evil cabals in the government.”
They alleged that apart from the 20,000 they got on two occasions in January and February 2015, “we had never and were never given anything.”
Their pain is that a certain cabal has hijacked President Muhammadu Buhari and more painful is the fact that most persons enjoying now, were not part of the struggle to elect him.
