The convoy of Hajia Aishat Buhari, the wife of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari(retd.), was attacked on Monday in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.

Mrs. Buhari, in company with her entourage, were returning from a courtesy visit to the Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Ibrahim Zulu-Gambari, when the convoy was attacked.

The APC women leaders were in the state for a two-day voter education summit for women.

It was gathered that no fewer than 10 vehicles were vandalised during the attack, but no report of human casualties or injuries was recorded.

The Kwara State APC chairman, Alhaji Ishola Balogun-Fulani, during a media briefing, confirmed the attack.

He accused a PDP leader in the state (name withheld) of being the brain behind the attack, calling on the police and other security agencies to be more at alert.

Balogun-Fulani appealed to the security agencies to caution the members of the Peoples Democratic Party.

He said, “It will be recalled that the APC has repeatedly reported to the police and other security agencies about the plan by the PDP to cause violence and mayhem before, during and after the forthcoming general elections.

“A worrisome incident took place on Monday, March 16, 2015 during the visit of Hajia Aishat Buhari, wife of APC presidential candidate. Her convoy was attacked around a film house along Emir Road, Ilorin. About 10 vehicles were vandalised.

“We also have it on good authority that two of the PDP thugs have been apprehended by the Police.

“We are using this medium again to call the Police and other security agencies to be alert and caution PDP.”

The Kwara State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Salihu Garba, confirmed the attack.
