An overzealous Protocol Officer attached to the Governor of Kano State Wife, Hafsat Ganduje, identified as Nuraddeen Sa’id, has threatened to take the lives of some journalists after he chased their moving vehicle almost into a ditch while trying to remove them from the First Lady’s convoy.
Naija247news learnt that the incident happened when the Governor’s wife was travelling to the Tudunwada Local Government Area of Kano State to participate in an event organised by the House of Representatives Majority Leader, Alhassan Ado Doguwa.
The Correspondents’ Chapel was invited to cover the programme and their vehicle was placed in front of the First Lady’s vehicle, as it’s the tradition to place the vehicle conveying journalists ahead of the Governor’s vehicle in the convoy.
Naija247news from witnesses that as the First Lady’s convoy was moving on high speed along Kano-Zaria Express Way, the journalists overheard sharp noise of sudden brake from the protocol officer’s jeep that was chasing their vehicle.
It was learnt that the action devastated the driver of the journalists who nearly fell into a nearby ditch, with the Protocol Officer shouting on them “get out”.
The journalists had to park their bus to allow the heavy convoy to overtake them on top speed, while all of them tried to recover from the shock resulting from the incident.
They later decided to go on low speed far behind the First Lady’s convoy, arriving Tudunwada Local Government Area almost late while the programme was rounding off.
When the team of journalists approached the Protocol Officer to enquire why he nearly caused their lives on a very high speed, he turned with a frowned face and still shouted on top of his voice, “So what? You can go to hell.”
