Mr. Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party candidate for the 2019 presidential election said the security agents at the Abuja international Airport harassed him on his arrival from Dubai.
Abubakar left Nigeria last month for Dubai on a vacation days after he emerged as the PDP presidential candidate.
When I arrived at Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport this morning I was searched by some security agents, their aim is targeted at harassing my staff and I, Atiku said.
After the incident, Atiku made a tweet at about 4:00 p.m on Sunday saying “I am committed to building a Nigeria where no citizen is intimidated by security agents of state who are paid to protect them. ”
Although he did not mention the security agents that searched him, Atiku believes the search was targeted at harassing and intimidating him.
He also did not tell his supporters what the Airport security found on him during the search.
