The Atiku Presidential Campaign Organization, APCO, said the “invasion” of the presidential hopeful, Atiku Abubakar’s plane, was a ‘premeditated intimidation tactic’.

“Our intelligence, anti-graft and security agencies must be awake to its responsibility of investigating the Dubai meeting. Cash and carry politicians must be prevented from moving illicit cash around to induce voters and sponsor election violence and rigging,” Nabena tweeted.
APCO said the statement reveals the premeditated intention by the APC and Nigeria government to deliberately “embarrass and possibly to set Abubakar up for the crimes they had already officially accused him of in their statement.” Read more
