Ogun: Nigerians react as angry Ogun residents stone Buhari, Oshiomhole at APC rally
Reactions have continued to trial attack on President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole on Monday at the party’s rally held in Abeokuta.
DAILY POST reports that President Buhari, alongside Oshiomhole and other APC dignitaries were stoned with materials suspected to be shoes and stones as he raised the hand of APC governorship candidate, Dapo Abiodun.
As a result of the violence, activities at the MKO Abiola International Stadium, Kuto, Abeokuta, were paused for some minutes as bodyguards guarded the president to avoid being hit by the objects being thrown at him and other party members.
The development angered the leaders of the party, including former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, who left the podium while the President was making his remarks.
The viral video has since stirred diverse reactions from Nigerians on the social media.
Here are some comments gathered by DAILY POST from Twitter:
