A foreign delegate from Canada was seen in a video in circulation which was sighted by PLATFORM TIMES lamented the ill-treatment meted out to them .
He said they arrived at the venue of the convention as early as 7 am but were not allowed admittance as at 1 pm.
He said they were asked to be in the queue but were beaten while some of them have their phones stolen.
While justifying their presence , the foreign delegate said “they sent us an e-mail that we should come by 7’o clock in the morning. We were there at 7 am. Later, they sent another e-mail that we should come at 9 am. They gave us a tag, took us on a bus. We went round all this place for almost one hour. They couldn’t let us in”.
“They finally told us to form a line. We got on the line. They started beating us, stealing our phones. As I am talking to you, we are still standing outside. Just look at what they are doing to foreign delegates. This is very unacceptable and the government has to know this. I came all the way from Canada and this is what we are getting”.
