Abeokuta - Rumours of a bomb blast nearly disrupted the scheduled visit of the First Lady, Patience Jonathan, to Abeokuta, the Ogun State Capital on Tuesday, reports Premium Times.

The programme was on-going when suddenly a rumour of possible bomb blast caused many of the party’s supporters to leave the venue in fear.
