The Senator representing Bayelsa East, Ben Murray-Bruce, has condemned the decision of the security agents to search the plane of the presidential candidate of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.
The PDP flag bearer, who just returned to Nigeria after his stay in Dubai, on Sunday hinted that he was intimated by security operatives.
Reacting, Ben Bruce condemned the harassment of the Wazirin Adamawa.
He urged President Muhammadu Buhari's government to leave him alone and not turn Nigeria to a 'dictator state'.
The Bayelsa lawmaker wrote:
"I totally condemn this reckless harassment of Atiku the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as he landed in Abuja.
"Nigeria is not a fascist state. We will not return to a jackboot dictatorship. This government should face Abubakar at the polls, not with force."
