Social media is currently abuzz over an object underneath the attire Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the house of representatives, wore to the Independence Day parade at Aso Rock.
Adorning a white “agbada” with blue cap, Nigeria’s number four man inspected the parade after Senate President Ahmad Lawan had done so.
Beside Gbajabiamila was a top-ranking soldier while a police officer stood behind him as he stepped on the red rug laid for distinguished personalities.
The picture that set tongues wagging
However, moments after the parade was over, social media users started commenting on the activities and people drew attention to the object tucked inside the attire.
While some said it is a bulletproof vest, others said there could be more to it.

Perhaps, it's not bulletproof but embroidery, which means his tailor did a bad job. He needs to start using Ebuka's tailor. 😀— Olusegun Iselaiye (@iotama22) October 2, 2019
