Hoodlums waylay Amosun’s convoy

By DAUD OLATUNJI
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.”
