An Arise TV cameraman has been chased out of an APC event for filming the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu.
The cameraman ( name withheld) was reportedly live-streaming the event when he was sent out.
Bayo Onanuga, APC Presidential Campaign Council Director of Media and Publicity, disclosed this in a tweet on Friday.

Onanuga said on Twitter:
“Arise TV cameraman clandestinely streamed live Asíwájú Bola Tinubu’s event in Lagos today. He was not authorised by anyone.”
However, Onanuga insisted that the journalist was a spy from the publication.
“He was clearly on espionage, but was busted and sent out. Is journalism by stealth part of the practice by Arise News?”
Earlier, Tinubu and the APC had turned down several invitations by Arise TV and other media houses to discuss his plans for the country with Nigerians.
