Supporters of the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, caused a stir which led to a slight breach of protocol and security at the venue of the presidential screening exercise of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Leakblast.com reports that the Osinbajo who partook in the presidential screening, which lasted over an hour was prevented from entering his waiting car at the VIP section of the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, where the APC carried out its exercise ahead of Saturday’s presidential primary.
His supporters chanting “Osinbajo, we love you” descended on the venue where they threw themselves at him creating a security breach while the VP’s security team struggle to gain control of the situation, according to the Whistler.
Operatives of the State Security Service and heavily armed mobile policemen quickly formed a shield around the Vice President who stumbled into his waiting car.
Even as the vehicle zoomed off, the wooden barricades were not spared as his supporters climbed to scale them, breaking some sections in the process.
