The All Progressives Congress, APC allegedly hired fake bishops to attend the unveiling Sen. Shettima Kashima as running mate to Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the APC.
The event as attended by the alleged clerics stirred reactions from Nigerians.
One of the bishops who attended the unveiling was identified, was booed and almost mobbed on Saturday in the Federal Capital, Abuja.
There has been controversy over the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the ruling party ahead of the 2023 general election.
There had been several reports that some persons were paid to dress in bishopric attires to show support for the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the APC.
Though, the name of the said bishop was not mentioned by the people in Dei Dei International Building Materials Market Abuja.
The traders at the market had identified him as one of the bishops at the official unveiling of Shettima as the running mate to the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu.
Fortunately for the bishop, operatives of the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) came to his rescue and took him away for safety.
