Abuja - The bodyguards of President Muhammadu Buhari, who participated in the 2015 presidential elections, yesterday protested against what they feel to be an exclusion by what they referred to as "cabals in the government," Punch reports.
The bodyguards alleged that apart from two payments of N20,000 that they received in January and February 2015, they had not received anything from the government for their services.

Claims were also made by the bodyguards that some actors in the government who were not working for President Buhari, were now reaping where they did not sow and were preventing them access to the president.
In a statement released by their spokesperson, Olabiyi Balogun, the group warned that their continued marginalisation constituted a security threat to the country.
"Right now, we need Mr. President to appreciate our hard work for him. We need Mr. President to recognise the fact that we have lost everything because we championed the change agenda," Balogun said.
