ABEOKUTA—Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun was Monday evening pelted with stones at Station Road Garage in Ijebu-Igbo, Ijebu North Local Government Area of the state.
Pandemonium broke out shortly after the governor concluded his tour of the local government area when his convoy was waylaid and the governor was allegedly pelted with stones by hoodlums who were reportedly not happy with his style of governance.
Vanguard checks revealed that security operatives attached to the governor shot sporadically into the air to resist the hoodlums before the governor allegedly alighted and trekked few metres in the direction of the attackers.
The security operatives and men of the State Security Service were said to have been able to bring the situation under control.
Neither the governor nor any member of the entourage was injured in the attack.
Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer in Ogun State, Mr. Muyiwa Adejobi, said no fewer than 14 suspects have been arrested.
According to him, ”We condemn the incident in its totality. We have arrested 14 of them and they are at the State Criminal Investigation Department. We are still investigating.”
