The long Hold-Up leading to INEC office.
The Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki, five other Presidential aspirants, alongside the PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus, were teargassed by the Nigerian Police during a peaceful protest against the partiality of the nation’s electoral body and the police during the governorship election in Osun State which produced Mr. Oyetola as the winner.

The protesters, which included presidential aspirants under the PDP, Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki; Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal; former Governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido; and Senator Datti Baba Ahmed had left the INEC Headquarters, and were approaching the Police headquarters on a peaceful protest where they were met with police barricades and live ammunition.
A member of the PDP who spoke to us says: “This assault on leaders of our nation’s main opposition party shows that our security forces have a low-tolerance for dissenting voices in the country, meaning that we are not safe in Nigerian anymore”.
