Security Aides Attack Journalists in Court

Dr. Bukola Saraki

Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki

On June 27, 2016, security aides to Nigeria’s Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, assaulted photo journalists who wanted to take shots when Dr. Saraki and his deputy, Sen. Ike Ekweremadu arrived the Federal Capital Territory High Court in Abuja.

Both Saraki and Ekweremadu were in court to answer to charges of forgery of Senate rules.

The security operatives stationed themselves at the entrance of court and threatened to shoot photojournalists and television cameramen who also positioned themselves to take vintage shots for their media houses.

At a point the security details began to cover the cameras to prevent them from being able to take pictures.

Though the cameramen held that they needed to take cutaway clips to enable them to establish their story before the start of the court sitting, the security aides were not persuaded by their explanations and attacked them with gun butts.
