It was gathered that during the search, video recording gadgets and other devices were used to capture the exercise but nothing implicating was found on the Presidential Aspirants
Hours after, Atiku himself confirmed the development.
“I arrived to Abuja this morning to a search by agents of the state, aimed at intimidating me and my staff.
This led to some Arguments. Here is a Tweet by Senator Ben Murray Bruce; It looked as though some of his Followers Are Buharist:
I totally condemn this reckless harassment of @atiku the candidate of the @OfficialPDPNig as he landed in Abuja. Nigeria is not a fascist state. We will not return to a jackboot dictatorship. This government should face Atiku at the polls, not with force https://t.co/CfPpeugMud

If PDP Chairman was the one invited by DSS for interrogation the way APC Chairman was, we won't rest in Nigeria. Please, there is no big deal in a search at the airport. Haba!

On arrival at Kotoka international airport a couple of years ago, the security personnel searched you, I was right behind you.
The didn't find anything implicative and let you go.
Is Ghana a fascist state?

It is high time PDP call on International bodies that Buhari presence at Paris Peace accord is a facade, he abhor peace & promote chaos at every given opportunity.@EmmanuelMacron @10DowningStreet @POTUS @USEmbassyAbuja @theresa_may @EU_Commission
Nigeria is at internal war.

You’re a joker. So you want to test the Customs to see how you can easily bring in Guns and fake military uniforms for 2019 elections abi ? Was that the meeting you enemies of Nigeria had in Dubai with @Atiku ? Atiku is not above the law, you hear me. @AsoRock #FailedMission

I don't see any issue in searching if truly you believe in equality.. It's normal to be search please stop attaching everything to politics. You're a presidential candidate shouldn't stop them from searching you sir!!
