Police shoot at Saraki, Ben Bruce, Tambuwal and others at INEC office
According to reports making the round, Police have reportedly attacked leaders and members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who are presently protesting against the result of the Osun State Governorship election at the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Abuja.
Ben Bruce made this known in a tweet:
“I have just been teargassed by the @PoliceNG at @inecnigeria office. Gunshots have been fired.
“This was a peaceful protest. How can I be treated like this in a country I have fought for and invested in?
“This is madness, I came with words they answered with bullets!”
The PDP wants the INEC to declare PDP candidate, Ademola Adeleke the winner of the Osun election. Senate President, Bukola Saraki; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, the National Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State; former Niger State Governor and presidential aspirant, Sule Lamido; and Senator Dino Melaye, and others were among the protesters.
