It was gathered that although, Terrab had reported the incident to the police, his family members including his wife were also arrested by the SARS operatives. The arrest followed the politicians appearance in the state since the incident happened in Maiduguri.
However, his campaign posters and bill boards currently litter Maiduguri.
The SARS team and a dozen of other officers in plain clothes laid siege at the venue of the event.
While Terrab's aides were seen begging some of the police officers not to carry out the arrest, the politician was seen moving closer to Atiku who was guided out of the hall by his aides as he finished his speech.
