Nigerians online are reacting to the violent attack during Ogun APC campaign rally where the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari was attacked alongside other top APC leaders, booed and stoned in an embarrassing manner.
However, some Nigerian online users are claiming that Amosun should be blamed. They accused Ogun Governor Amosun of giving his political thugs sign to attack the President and others.
Twitter user, Samuel @Ikechuk91746096 said:
“Review the video and u will see where Amosun was gearing his supporters not to stop their booing!”
Another Nigerian on Twitter Proper Ijebu Boy�� @OsikoBolu went extensively to talk about the ugly incident and insinuated that Amosun gave his boys signal to attack.
” Most people don’t the truth about APC Ogun state presidential campaign.
The harvock, and stoning was all plans of the incumbent governor Amosun”
“Amosun created a new party when his preferred candidate lost the APC primaries to Dapo Abiodun(APC flag bearer)
Amosun created APM(Allied people movement) for his preferred candidate Adekunle Akinlade as the governorship candidate of the party.
APM adopted Buhari at the Presidential level.”
“Former governor of Ogun State took Dapo Abiodun to PMB in Aso Rock while Amosun also took Akinlade to Aso Rock.
Amosun however threatened APC supporters who doesn’t support Akinlade to extent of sacking Ogun waterside LG Chairman”
“However earlier today at MKO Stadium in Abeokuta, APM thugs allegedly drove away APC supporters from the venue with weapons which APC supporters had to scale the fence to escape
and filled the stadium with APM supporters”
“Pandemonium broke out when the APC flag bearer Dapo Abiodun’s hand was supposed to be raised by Oshiomole, Amosun who had plans for Akinlade’s hand to be raised had already instructed APM supporters to boo the action which led to stones thrown at Oshiomole.”
