A video journalist from Channels television in the press corp of the Presidential Villa, George Edemovuge has been reassigned following the viral video which captured the conversation between the Chief of Staff to the President, Professor Ibrahim Gambari and the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC Adams Oshiomhole.
In the video conversation, the duo could be heard discussing the arrest of certain persons in connection with the upcoming Edo State Governorship election
The opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP had earlier held on to it, accusing the ruling party of planning to use federal might to undermine the electoral process and cow the opposition.
The allegation though has been denied by the Presidency in a statement credited to the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu
However, a twist of events barely a week after the video went viral, the cameraman was removed from the Presidential Villa Press Corp.
But it is unclear at the moment whether his removal from the Villa was caused by the State House or Channels television, his employers. He is now said to have been redeployed to the Senate.
