Former Nigerian senator, Shehu Sani earlier warned Senate President, Godswill Akpabio not to pass a route in Abuja over protesting Nigerians.

Sani, in a post via Twitter on Monday, said he recently encountered protesters in Wuse 2, carrying placards against ‘hunger in the land’.

According to the former Kaduna Central lawmaker, some of the protesters among them recognized him and allowed him to pass.

However, Sani suggested in the post that Akpabio might not be given a free pass by the protesters. He, therefore, advised the Senate President not to go through Wuse 2.

He wrote: “I just passed a group of protesters in Wuse 2, carrying placards against ‘hunger in the land’. Some ladies among them recognized me and shouted “No be that Afro Senator be that”, I answered “yes na me the former Senator”; then they responded “Oya pass”. Make Akpabio no pass there o.”
