Suspected hoodlums this afternoon attacked the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole with stones at the Moshood Abiola International Stadium, Kuto, Abeokuta, Ogun State venue of the presidential campaign rally.

Violence broke out during the rally when Oshiomhole was called to the podium to speak to the crowd. Stones started flying onto the podium with some hitting President Muhammadu Buhari who was quickly shielded by his security personnel.

More stones were thrown at Oshiomhole when President Buhari raised the hands of Prince Dapo Abiodun as the APC governorship candidate for the state.

The hoodlums also attacked supporters of the APC governorship candidate Prince Dapo Abiodun wearing yellow caps.
