Osinbajo apologises as aides beat journalist at Presidential Villa; says viral list of sacked aides should be ignored

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has apologized after his security aides assaulted a journalist at the banquet hall of the presidential villa in Abuja where the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM) chaired by Abike Dabiri-Erewa organised  a summit.

Recall  that Abayomi Adeshida, a photo-journalist with Vanguard was taking photographs of the vice president at the exhibition stand when Department of State Services (DSS) operatives pounced on him as Osinbajo was being presented a copy of the magazine as souvenir.  The photo-journalist later told his colleagues that he was not told his offence. He said he did not do anything out of the ordinary before the security operatives started hitting him.

Reacting to the backlash that trailed the incident, Osinbajo’s media aide Laolu Akande apologized publicly on his behalf. He further disclosed that the issue has been resolved.

He tweeted “The needless scuffle btw a villa accredited photographer, Mr. Adeshida & one of our security aides earlier today has since been resolved. Incident is regretted & I have apologized to him for any embarrassment caused. “

Also commenting on the viral list of sacked aides of the Vice President, Akande said it should be ignored.

“Also, a list circulating in the media on d so-called sacked ……presidential aides is not genuine and ought to be ignored” he tweeted.
