Vice President Yemi Osinbajo yesterday apologised as his security aides beat up a photojournalist with the Vanguard Newspapers, attached to the State House, Abayomi Adeshida. This happened at the State House Banquet Hall during the opening of the Nigeria Diaspora Investment Summit organised by the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission chaired by Abike Dabiri-Erewa.
This was two days after 35 aides of Osinbajo were reportedly sacked by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Adeshida, who said he was not told what he did wrong, alleged that the security details hit and dragged him on the floor. Adeshida, who said his camera was damaged, added: “I was shocked when these DSS men started beating me for no apparent reason. They tore my Presidential Villa accreditation tag on the shirt and dragged me on the floor while hitting me and kicking me.”
