Hoodlums have reportedly attacked journalists covering the homecoming of All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, who returned to Lagos State 12 days after he won the ruling party’s ticket.
As gathered, the journalists were attacked while returning from the Palace of Oba of Lagos, Oba Riliwanu Akiolu, where they had gone to cover Asiwaju’s visit to the monarch.
The journalists involved were said to be those attached to the Lagos State Governor’s office. It was learnt that two journalists were injured while their bus was vandalised.
Their attackers were said to have stoned the bus conveying the journalists while other weapons were also used to vandalised it.
Asiwaju had in the days following his emergence visited all the contenders for the exalted seat in a bid to solicit their support and build the APC’s unity.
Asiwaju had earlier on Sunday when he landed in Lagos said it felt good to be back home. He was welcomed by an excited crowd from the airport and he was seen waving at ecstatic supporters who hailed him.
The supporters who were waving brooms, which is an APC symbol, were chanting “Emilokan” as they followed his entourage.
