Abuja - Senator Ben Murray-Bruce has alleged that operatives of the State Security Service stopped him from “greeting” President Muhammadu Buhari at a state dinner organised to mark 2016 Democracy Day.
Murray-Bruce tweeted around 10:45pm on Monday, “I was at the Presidential Villa today, went to the president’s table. DSS wouldn’t allow me greet him, but let another senator greet him.”
The senator later expanded the tweet on his Facebook page, adding, “I have nothing against the President, however, nobody is too important to be criticized and my mouth will never be silenced!”
He did not name the senator that was allowed passage to the president after he (Murray-Bruce) was bounced.
