Security operatives shielded President Muhammadu Buhari during an outbreak of violence at the presidential rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun state on Monday.
The president could not end his speech at the MKO Abiola International Stadium, Kuto, Abeokuta, where there was a mammoth crowd.
The rally was brought to an abrupt end after Buhari raised the hand of Dapo Abiodun, the APC governorship candidate in the state.
Immediately, the president raised Abiodun’s hand, some aggrieved persons said to be members of APM, the party of Abudlkabir Akinlade, the state governor’ Ibikunle Amosun’s choice candidate, started throwing objects towards the president’s direction, forcing security operatives to form a ring around him.
The aggrieved persons had earlier pelted Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the ruling party, with stones and chased supporters of Abiodun from the stadium.
