Security operatives had to shield 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 left arm of Dapo Abiodun, the APC governorship candidate in the state.
Immediately, the president raised Abiodun’s arm, some aggrieved persons threw objects towards his 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.
