President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday escaped being hit by stones as hoodlums pelted the National Chairman of the party All Progressives Congress (APC) Adams Oshiomole, with stones.

The sorry incident took place at the Presidential rally which commenced immediately after President Buhari arrived the MKO Abiola International Stadium, Kuto, Abeokuta, the Ogun capital.

Violence erupted when Oshiomhole was invited to the podium for his speech.

As he began to speak, persons suspected to be hoodlums started throwing stones at him and one of the stones flew in the direction where the President was standing.

He was saved by one of the security operatives who took the hit for the President.

The development angered the leaders of the party, including former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, who left the podium while the President was making his remarks.
