Drama as man breaches protocol to accost Tinubu on podium at Eagle Square (Video)

There was mild confusion and pandemonium at the Eagle Square in Abuja on Monday when a man caused a scene during the inauguration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Towards the end of Tinubu’s inaugural speech, a young man breached the protocol by climbing the podium in an attempt to approach him.

However, he was immediately tackled and prevented from getting close to President Tinubu.

The yet-to-be identified man, was dressed in Babariga and he climbed the podium while holding a brown envelope.

It was gathered that the same man did something similar earlier when when he ran across the parade ground towards President Tinubu while he was inspecting the parade on the motorcade

On the second attempt, he somehow found his way to the stage, climbed and rushed towards the President but he was stopped and whisked away by security operatives.

Men of the press covering the event made efforts to interview the suspect but they were rebuffed by operatives of the Department of State Services.
