Security agents have denied Journalists accredited for the coverage of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Special Convention in Abuja entrance at the Eagle Square venue of the event.
Dozens of journalists who had gathered at the entrance were barred by the security agents who claimed to be acting on orders from the above.
Gun and horse-whip-wielding security men ordered the accredited journalists to leave the entrance. After pushing people away they sprayed teargas on them forcing them to scamper for safety.
Meanwhile, seven presidential aspirants contesting under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have rejected the five names that were purportedly submitted to President Muhammadu Buhari to select a consensus candidate.
They insisted nobody consulted them before the governors arrived at the decision.
