A report gathered that, the convoy of Hajia Aishat Buhari, wife of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential Candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, was on Monday 16 March in Ilorin, Kwara State capital, attacked by suspected Peoples Democratic Party’s, PDP, thugs.
Briefing newsmen on the incident, the state Chairman of the APC, Hon. Ishola Balogun-Fulani, said no fewer than 10 vehicles were vandalised around the film house on Emir’s road in the metropolis.
Hajia Buhari, who was in the state on Citizens Outreach Town Hall Meeting, had earlier paid a courtesy visit on the Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu Gambari, shortly on arriving the state capital and was heading to Government House to pay a similar visit to Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed when the ugly incident happened.
The APC Chairman alleged that the plan to attack the convoy was hatched and executed by a chieftain of the PDP and his cohorts, adding that “we have it on good authority that two of the PDP thugs had been apprehended by the Police.”
Mrs. Buhari was in the company of the wife of the vice-presidential candidate, Mrs Oludolapo Osinbajo; Kwara State First Lady, Mrs Omolewa Ahmed and wife of the immediate past governor of Kwara State, Mrs Oluwatoyin Saraki among others on the way to a women sensitization programme in Ilorin.
