BREAKING: Two injured as hoodlums attack Tinubu’s convoy in Lagos

The convoy of the presidential flagbearer of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu was attacked in Lagos by hoodlums.

It was gathered that Tinubu was attacked at the Adeniji end of Isale Eko after the former Lagos governor paid a visit to the Oba of Lagos.

The bus conveying press crew covering Lagos State Governor’s Office was attacked by the thugs between Ebute-Ero and Adeniji, Iga-Iduganran axis on Lagos Island, leaving no fewer than two journalists wounded with others sustaining various scars on their bodies.

The press crew bus which was in the convoy of the APC chieftian was attacked by the thugs who threw heavy stones repeatedly as it joined other vehicles conveying dignitaries, including Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu; Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje; and others, who had just left the palace of Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwanu Akiolu.

Tinubu, who arrived at Lagos Airport at around 3:40 pm, to the waiting hands of an enthusiastic crowd of party loyalists and supporters, had immediately headed to the palace of Oba Akiolu on a courtesy call.

However, a Western Post correspondent, Adeola Ogunrinde and Omatseye Atsenuwa of Smooth 98.1FM got wounded, while Adedoja Salam of TVC went into shock due to the heavy bombardment of stones and bricks thrown at the press crew bus, leaving the windscreen and nearly all the side screens were broken.

Ogunrinde got wounded in the face, while Atsenuwa had his arm hit directly by one of the heavy stones thrown at the press crew bus.

Tinubu was heading to his Bourdillon Avenue, Ikoyi residence from the palace.

According to the report, the hoodlums who were wielding swords and cutlasses, threw stones at the convoy as it drove from the palace. They also smashed side glasses and front windshields of vehicles in the convoy.

Though Tinubu was not affected by the attack, the bus conveying journalists and the backup security car on the convoy were the most affected.
