Former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has lambasted Vice President Yemi Osinbajo after his security aides allegedly brutalised a reporter.
Naija News reports that a photojournalist with Vanguard identified as Abayomi Adeshida has alleged that he was beaten by security aides attached to the Vice-President early Thursday morning.
The incidence had occurred at the banquet hall of the presidential villa in Abuja where the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) chaired by Abike Dabiri-Erewa organized a summit.
Adeshida was said to have been taking pictures of the vice president at the exhibition stand when the Department of State Services (DSS) operatives picked him up as Osinbajo was being presented a copy of the magazine as a souvenir.
Reacting in a post on his Twitter page, Fani-Kayode said allowing his security aides to beat-up a reporter was an act of cowardice by Osinbajo.
He wrote: “Someone tell @ProfOsinbajo that getting his security team to beat up @vanguardngrnews’s Abayomi Adeshida & smash his camera won’t make @MBuhari give him back his 35 sacked aides or restore his lost honour & glory.
“Hitting soft targets that cannot hit back is the coward’s way!”
