Reno Omokri, a former aide of the immediate past President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has stated that what the Nigerian police should have done after attacking the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and others was to issue a public apology to them.
There were reports that, Saraki, Dino Melaye, Ben Bruce, Aminu Tambuwal, Sule Lamido and many other top shots of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) were teargassed by the police at the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC).
The Senator representing Bayelsa East, Ben Murray Bruce had alleged that police attacked leaders and members of PDP, who were protesting against the outcome of the Osun State Governorship election at the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) in Abuja.
Leaders of the opposition party among whom were Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara and the National Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, led the protesters to INEC office after they had earlier converged at the national headquarters of PDP in Abuja.
Also among the protesters were Governor Aminu Tambuwal, former Niger State Governor, Sule Lamido and Senator Dino Melaye.
They had gone to demand that the electoral umpire should declare PDP candidate, Ademola Adeleke as the winner of the Osun election.
