AIT crews barred from covering Buhari's event

Security advisers of the President-Elect,
Gen. Muhammadu Buhari on Monday
barred the television crew of the African
Independent Television from covering the activities of their principal until
further notice.

It was gathered that the security team cited adverse security reports and ethical issues as reasons for their action. Members of the AIT crew, who were at Defence House, venue of a meeting between the President-elect and a
visiting Cuban delegation, led by its
Ambassador to Nigeria, were asked to
leave the vicinity until further notice.

The crew, who did not speak on record,
insisted they would remain and continue to do their jobs because they
had yet to be “formally informed.”

“Yes, we were told but we cannot just
leave; we have a job to do. In any case,
we have not been officially informed
about what we have done wrong,” one
of them said.

Director of Press of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Organisation, Mallam Garba Shehu,
confirmed the development.
