One of the bishops who attended the unveiling of the vice presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Kashim Shettima was almost lynched in the Federal Capital Territory on Saturday.
The Bishop was one of the ‘clerics’ who attended the event which stirred reaction in Nigeria.
There had been claims that some persons were paid to dress like Bishop to show that the same faith ticket of the APC is widely accepted.
There has been controversy over the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the ruling party ahead of the 2023 general election.
Naija News learnt that the Bishop whose name was not revealed was almost lynched by 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.
Operatives of the Nigerian police force had to come to his rescue before people in the market would lynch the Bishop.
