Trump rushed off stage by security

Published

Republican candidate Donald Trump was briefly rushed off the stage by Secret Service agents at a rally in Reno, Nevada, in a false alarm.

A man holding a sign saying Republicans Against Trump was tackled by security agents, after shouts that he had a gun.

Mr Trump returned to the stage at Saturday’s rally minutes later.

The Republican candidate says he is going to target states seen as Democratic strongholds ahead of Tuesday’s election.

Both candidates have been making late changes to their travel schedules as falling poll numbers for Mrs Clinton in some key Democratic-leaning states present what the Trump campaign sees as new opportunities.

However, a new NBC/Wall St Journal opinion poll on Sunday suggested a four-point lead for Mrs Clinton.

The latest Washington Post/ABC tracking poll puts her lead at five points.

Sunday’s campaign stops take Mrs Clinton to Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire, while Mr Trump travels to Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

According to the statement published in the Nigerian papers one of Pinnick’s properties is in London.

It comes amidst wide-ranging claims over how money meant for football development allegedly disappeared.

“We can’t go into further details beyond the fact that many officials of the NFF are under investigation,” ICPC spokesperson, Rasheedat Okoduwa said.

“It’s basically because what they have is in excess of what they have earned.”

The ICPC has also taken control of properties belonging to the NFF second vice-president Shehu Dikko and the general secretary Muhamed Sanusi among others.
