Abuja - Several ex-bodyguards of President Muhammadu Buhari have threatened to take over Aso Rock in demand of wages allegedly owed to them.
According to a Naij report, the bodyguards, who served during electioneering campaigns in 2015, have claimed that they are owed funds for their services and plan to occupy the presidential residents should their demands not be met with immediate effect.
While staging a protest at the entrance of the presidential villa, the security personnel decried their living conditions and claimed that they could not provide for their families during the upcoming Salleh celebrations.

We also demanded that we need to be paid our entitlements and we proposed that for the inconveniences we have suffered in the last 20 months, we demanded to be paid 20 million each," Balogun stated.
