The youths believed to be members of the opposition All Progressive Congress reportedly pulled down some banners bearing the image of the First Lady.
It was gathered that the men waited patiently until it was time for the First Lady’s speech delivery when they climbed the fence where the banners were placed and began to pull them.

The men were accosted by some policemen dressed in branded T-shirts, bearing the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria logo for attempting to mar the President’s wife visit.

According to Punch, it was in the process of a brewing brawl that some policemen, drafted to the venue of the rally to provide security, whisked them away in a police vehicle.

Confirming the incident, the state Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr. Chris Nehikhare, said he had no doubt that the perpetrators were sympathisers of the All Progressives Congress.

Nehikhare said, “I am sure they were APC people. No PDP youth will be aggrieved to the extent of pulling down the First Lady’s posters; every PDP youths love the First Lady.

“But I will investigate to find out and let you know tomorrow
