Murtala Mohammed, the Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry and Member of Parliament for Nantong, was on Saturday chased away from the Zing registration centre for insulting some community members in the area.
DAILY GUIDE reports that the MP for the area bused in some students from a different community to the registration centre to register.
A former assemblyman of the community, who is an uncle to Murtala Mohammed, reportedly warned the people at the registration centre that whoever tried to touch the MP would face his wrath.
His comments got some community members at the centre angry and this resulted in verbal exchange with the MP and his uncle leaving the centre.
Mohammed Abdul Latif, the Nantong constituency secretary of the New Patriotic Party, told DAILY GUIDE that the MP came to the registration centre with some three well-built men who were in the vehicle with guns.
He accused Murtala Mohammed of bussing people, most especially students, who were not residents of the area to register at various centres.
The NPP agents at the registration centre made sure the people who were bused to the place to register were not allowed to register since they were not natives of the area.
