Angry protesters stone and chase Saraki out of Lafiaji town
Senate President, Bukola Saraki was attacked by a group of protesters in Lafiaji, Edu LGA of Kwara state.
Saraki was in Lafiaji to pay a visit to Senator Shaaba Lafiaji, a senator representing Kwara Central senatorial district. The angry youths believe Saraki had come to protect the senator from prosecution after soldiers attached to him killed three Lafiaji youths on November 17th, 2017.
The youths allegedly stoned the Senate president’s Convoy and burnt down a building belonging to Shaaba. PoliticsNGR gathered that after meeting with the Emir and some traditional rulers, Saraki proceeded to visit the families of the victims killed by soldiers attached to Mr Lafiaji, an announcement that did not augur well with youths.
They quickly mobilized and started pelting the SP’s convoy with stones and pursued him out of the town.
