Abuja - The Kwara State chapter of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned the attack on the convoy of Aishat Buhari, wife of the presidential candidate of the party.
The convoy of Muhammadu Buhari’s wife was attacked in Ilorin, capital on Monday.
APC blamed the ruling People’s Democratic Party for the attack and bemoaned lack of protection from police and other security agencies.
“It will be recalled that the APC has repeatedly reported to the police and other security agencies about the plan by the PDP to cause violence and mayhem before, during and after the forthcoming general elections,” State Chairman, Alhaji Ishola Balogun Fulani, said.

“A worrisome incident took place today, 16th of March, 2015 during the visit of Hajia Aishat Buhari, wife of APC presidential candidate. Her convoy was attacked around a film house along Emir Road, Ilorin. About ten vehicles were vandalized.”
He said one Alhaji Yinka Aluko and his alleged cohort hatched and executed the attack.
“We also have it on good authority that two of the PDP thugs have been apprehended by the Police. We are using this medium again to call the Police and other security agencies to be alert and call PDP to order.”
Comment could not be obtained from PDP and security agencies.
