Some hoodlums and political thugs stoned President Jonathan’s convoy as he was leaving the house of the Yar’Adua residence after visiting the late President Yar’Adua’s mum.
As President Jonathan who was accompanied by Vice President Namadi Sambo; National Chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Adamu Muazu; and Governor Ibrahim Shema of Katsina State were entering the residence they met a mob of youths wielding brooms and shouting ‘Sai Buhari’ referring to General Muhammadu Buhari who is from the State. Security is said to have had a time containing the crowd.
As the entourage were leaving, security had to fire teargas into the restive crowd who began hurling stones at the Presidential motorcade but fortunately, no one was hurt.
Political violence of any kind should not be condoned in this elections. It will only hurt the candidate you stand for in the long run, as some people from the Buhari camp have changed their minds due to this violence. Vote Not Fight.
