There was mild drama towards the end of the 2023 Presidential Inauguration at Eagle Square in Abuja on Monday, May 29, after a yet to be identified man breached protocol by climbing the podium in an attempt to hand over a letter to President Bola Tinubu.
The man who was dressed in a Babariga was stopped by security officers as he attempted to hand over a brown envelop to President Tinubu.
The young man had made a similar effort when he ran across the parade ground towards President Tinubu while he was inspecting the parade on the motorcade but he was quickly stopped by security operatives. Surprisingly he again found his way close to the stage where he made an attempt to climb and rush towards the President but he was immediately stopped and whisked away by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).
