Jonathan’s convoy was initially pelted with stones on Tuesday, January 20, during a campaign visit to Katsina State.
President Goodluck Jonathan’s entourage has again been stoned during a campaign rally in Bauchi State.
Youths in Bauchi are also said to have replicated the assault by stoning some delegates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with pebbles, slippers, hammers, sachet water and other objects.
The attackers were said to have been singing Jonathan’s praise upon arrival at the Ibrahim Babangida Square, where the rally held.
However, when the President arrived at the venue, their song reportedly changed and they launched the attack on the delegates.
The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Bala Mohammed was said to have been stoned with sachet water during the assault.
The youths were also said to have taken up chants of “Sai Buhari”, “Sai Baba Buhari” showing their support for the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari.
The PDP had blamed the earlier attack on Buhari saying that he would be held liable if such an event were to reoccur.
