The spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Kola Ologbondiyan, has claimed that Alhaji Buba Galadima, a spokesperson of Atiku presidential campaign, has been "kidnapped by masked security operatives, his whereabouts is unknown."
The PDP spokesman made this known in the evening of Sunday, February 24, via Twitter.
He tweeted: "Nigerians and the world over should know this— Alhaji Buba Galadima has just been kidnapped by masked security operatives, his whereabouts is unknown.
"Buhari/APC are hell bent on destroying our hard earned democracy.
"We will never be cowed, the will of the people MUST prevail."
Meanwhile, speaking to Premium Times on the development, Ologbondiyan said Galadima was arrested.
“He was accosted on the road and arrested,” Ologbondiyan was quoted to have said, adding that he was still making efforts to obtain further details.
While Ologbondiyan's claim has not been independently verified by Legit.ng, the news of the alleged arrest is coming shortly after the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council called for immediate arrest of Buba Galadima.

In a statement on Sunday, February 24, the APC campaign council accused Galadima of plotting to announce Atiku Abubakar, PDP presidential candidate, as the winner of the presidential election.
The campaign council claimed Galadima had recorded a short video to this effect, while acting on behalf of the PDP as its campaign spokesman.
It also claimed the opposition party is plotting to mobilise “hoodlums” for nationwide protests.
It is, however, unclear whether the alleged arrest was at the instance of the APC campaign's statement.
