Femi Fani-Kayode, former Minister of Aviation, criticized Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo afters the Department of State Services, DSS, assigned to him brutalised a journalist.
Fani-Kayode said that allowing his security assistants to strike a journalist was an act of cowardice on the part of the vice president.
News emerged on Thursday that a Vanguard Newspaper journalist, Abayomi Adeshida, was beaten by the security details of the vice president.
However, the head of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, insisted that allowing his security details to attack a journalist will not bring him back to his glory days.
In a tweet, Fani-Kayode wrote: “Someone tell @ProfOsinbajo that getting his security team to beat up @vanguardngrnews’s Abayomi Adeshida & smash his camera won’t make @MBuhari give him back his 35 sacked aides or restore his lost honor & glory. Hitting soft targets that cannot hit back is the cowards way!”
