An irate mob believed to be political opponents attacked the convoy of Jigawa State Governor, Badaru Abubakar while on a visit to Ringim town this weekend for a wedding.
According to Sahara Reporters, the incident occurred when the convoy of the governor navigated Market Road, which is a hotbed of opposition.
It was gathered that the mob threw sachets of water at the governor, chanting, “Allah ya iya Badaru,” meaning, “To hell with you, Badaru.”
It took the intervention of the Police escort that dispersed the rampaging mobs.
The spokesperson for the governor, Malam Bello Muhamamd Zaki, when contacted refuted the claim by some people that the governor’s convoy was stoned.
