Security operatives surround APC campaign spokesman’s residence

posted in: News | 0

A combined team of security operatives have surrounded the residence of the Director of Media of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Organization, Mallam Garba Shehu.
The operatives who were armed to the teeth, took positions around ‎the house located at area 11, Garki Abuja, as early as 5:35am on Thursday morning.
One of Shehu’s colleagues at the Atiku Media 0ffice, who pleaded anonymity, called The PUNCH at about 6am.
He said, “Security men have surrounded the residence of our director, Mallam Garba Shehu in Area 11. They came in several vehicles. I cannot make out which of the security services because it is still dark here.
“None of them has said anything about why they are laying siege at his house.”
It was gathered that the security operatives were miffed by the audacity of the APC campaign.
The APC campaign which Garba heads, organised a prime time interview for Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd) ‎on CNN.
It was aired minutes after President Goodluck Jonathan held a media chat on national television.
Analysts say the CNN interview gave Buhari the advantage of responding to some of the allegations against him as well as some of the issues raised by Jonathan.
Some of the issues include the shift in the 2015 elections, the Boko Haram insurgency and the anti-corruption fight.
Garba could not be reached for comments as of the time of filing this report.
