President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday at the Ogun State All Progressives Congress presidential rally held in Abeokuta, escaped being hit by stones as hoodlums pelted the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomole, with stones.
The programme, which commenced officially immediately after President Buhari arrived the MKO Abiola International Stadium, Kuto, Abeokuta, was paused for some minutes following the violence.Violence erupted when Oshiomhole was invited to the podium for his speech.
As he began to speak, persons suspected to be hoodlums started throwing stones at him and one of the stones flew in the direction where the President was sitting.
But his security aides covered him from being hit by the stones. The report we gathered was that all the APC leaders where embarrassed by this act, and even Asiwaju Bola Ahmed had to leave the podium while the president was giving his speech.
