The Police have deployed mobile policemen to the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Office in Abuja, venue of the planned protest by former bodyguards to President Muhammadu Buhari who participated during the campaigns.
The Spokesperson of the group, Badiru Olabiyi Balogun, told reporters on Thursday, that his group will go ahead with the protest.
He said, “Two truck loads of mobile policemen have been deployed to our office and that is our 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 out. So, we are meeting there by 9:00 am this (Thursday) morning to disgrace them. The venue is APC Presidential Campaign Office in front of Unity Bank, CBD, Abuja.”
Recall that the group had earlier issued a video documentary of their plights which went viral online.
In the video some of the protesting bodyguards were embittered over their “exclusion” by those they described “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.”
