The Chief Security Officer to President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly barred a reporter from the Presidential Villa also known as the Aso Rock.

According to TheCable, Olalekan Adetayo, the state house correspondent of The Punch Newspaper was expelled over a story on the state of the President’s health.

It was further reported that Adetayo's expulsion from the state house in Abuja and other activities in the Villa is not unconnected with the detailed report which Sunday Punch ran on the absence of the president in some key occasions since he returned to the country on March 10, 2017.

There had been unconfirmed reports that the President's health had deteriorated following his absence at the Federal Executive Council meeting twice since his return.
