The Saudi Arabia police have arrested thirty Nigerians for displaying the campaign poster of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu in the holy mosque, Kaaba.
The security operatives had reportedly arrested the Nigerians while walking around the Kaaba with Tinubu’s posters lifted further reports revealed that the incident happened before the Eid-El-Fitr (Sallah) celebration.
An eyewitness identified as Murtala Adamu Jega who spoke with SaharaReporters said, “I’m a witness; I saw them lift Bola Tinubu’s posters at the holy Kaaba.
“This is despicable. Instead of them devout precious time to pray for peace to return to our country, 30 men made a mockery of our nation by lifting a politician’s posters in the holy place. Thank God, Saudi authorities were swift to have arrested them right there and then.”
Another Nigerian who was at the mosque, Zainab Abdullahi, said, “the scenario was a very bad representation of Nigeria’s image before the world, and I think politicians must desist from this bad behaviour.”
Tinubu is hoping to emerge as the President of Nigeria at the end of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Tenure in 2023.
