Arise Television journalist Rufai Oseni has revealed that he was physically abused and threatened by some overzealous party supporters in an elevator.
Recall that Rufai Oseni has recently gained prominence over his comments on the political affairs of the country.
However, the journalist did not disclose the name of the particular political party involved in the incident.
While narrating the incident, Mr Oseni disclosed that the supporters of the political party abused him during the physical encounter in an elevator. He also stated that he left without responding to them.
“Abuses everywhere, people from a political party saw me an threatened me in an elevator.I just walked away, I have learnt it is not everyone you respond to.”
This is really disturbing, as there have been several calls and clamors by the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) and societal bodies for political supporters to avoid violence, both verbal and physical.
