The senator representing Kaduna Central at the Nigerian Senate, Shehu Sani, has called on the Federal Government to apologise to Atiku Abubakar after he was searched by security agents when he arrived in Nigeria from Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.
Concise News had reported earlier that security operatives allegedly searched the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on arrival from Dubai on Sunday.
Reacting to the development, Sani, a lawmaker on the platform of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), condemned the search, saying that Nigerians have been through “intimidation and harassment camouflaged as routine.”
Sani tweeted: “The overzealous acts of the security personnel at the Abuja Airport against the former Vice President Atiku stands outrightly condemned.
“We have been through this in our history. Intimidation and harassment camouflaged as routine.
“The FG should be humble and apologize to him,” the Kaduna central lawmaker opined.
