Hoodlums on Thursday attacked the campaign convoy of the Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in Lagos State, Mr Jimi Agbaje at Iba in Ojo, west of Lagos.
A News Agency of Nigeria political correspondent reports that the convoy had just left the palace of the Oniba of Iba, Oba Goriola Oseni when it came under ferocious attack.
As the convoy was driving out, hoodlums, numbering about 40, chased and threw stones at Agbaje’s vehicles.
Some of the hoodlums, clutching daggers and machetes, rode on motorcycles to keep pace with the speed of the convoy, throwing pebbles continually at the convoy.
The rear windscreen of a bus conveying some party members was shattered.
Some occupants of the bus sustained minor injuries caused by the shattered glass.
The hoodlums continued to advance towards the convoy for further attacks, before security details in the convoy engaged them, firing tear gas at them.
They later beat a hurried retreat while the convoy managed to escape.
However, Agbaje and people in other vehicles did not sustain injuries.
