Police Teargas Davido at PDP Presidential Primaries
A melee broke out at the entrance of Adokie Amiesiekema stadium in Port Harcourt, Rivers state where the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP is holding its convention to elect its presidential candidate for the 2019 general election.
The drama started when celebrated music star, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido was teargassed by security operatives, albeit unwittingly.
The security agents, in a bid to control the rowdy crowd at the gate, mistakenly fired teargas, not knowing that the multiple-award winning artiste was in the crowd.
Some party chieftains and security agents later went to appeal to him and usher him to the stadium with the crowd hailing him.
Davido whose uncle, Ademola Adeleke narrowly lost the Osun governorship election was among the entertainers that performed at the event.
The PDP primaries is still ongoing as Nigeria’s main opposition party looks to elect a candidate that will challenge President Muhammadu Buhari for the nation’s top job in 2019.
