Just days after the above picture of the wife of All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate – Aishat Buhari went viral she was attacked in Kwara.
A few days ago Mrs. Buhari won hearts when she helped a roadside Abuja Akara seller fry Akara. Based on the people we spoke to, the simple gesture endeared her to many.
However yesterday (March 16) that love turned to hate, when she was attacked in Kwara state. A convoy consisting of no fewer that 10 vehicles, carrying Mrs. Buhari and her entourage which included the wife of the VP candidate – Dolapo Osinbajo, was attacked.
Both women were in the state to campaign for their husbands. to mobilise support for their husbands in the ongoing campaigns. With them also were Kwara State First Lady, Mrs Omolewa Ahmed, and wife of the immediate past governor of Kwara State, Barrister Oluwatoyin Saraki.
The incident took place at the Ilorin film house area, which is very close to the Emir’s palace.
Kwara State APC chairman, Hon. Ishola Balogun- Fulani during a press conference addressing the attack accused The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of being behind the attack, specifically a well known PDP chieftain from Kwara Central.
We also have it on good authority that two of the PDP hoodlums have been apprehended by the police. We are using this medium again to call on the police and other security agencies to be on the alert and call PDP to order
Luckily no one was harmed but I’m sure the women are all frightened.
You may recall that in January President Jonathan’s convoy was stoned in Katsina and Bauchi State.
Please o! It’s vote not fight! Let’s keep the elections clean and violence free.
