Protesters stormed Chatham House, where the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammed Buhari gave a speech today in London.
Yesterday, an unnamed APC source revealed that the ruling party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had plotted and paid the sum of $20,000 (N4.3Million) to mobilize Nigerians to storm and protest at the venue where General Muhammed Buhari would be speaking on “Prospects for Democratic Consolidation in Africa, Nigeria’s transition.”
The Director of media and publicity of PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation and former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has however denied these allegations. He went on twitter to say “My attention has been drawn to a story that I am renting a crowd to embarrass Gen. Buhari at Chatham House later today. It’s a lie.”
Several hours after the allegations were denied, Nigerian protesters were pictured outside the Chatham House in London today.
Some of them had T-shirts with the inscription “Diaspora says no to a tyrant” on.
