Jigawa - Suspected political opponents attacked the convoy of the Jigawa State Governor Badaru Abubakar during his visit to Ringim town this weekend for a wedding.
The incident according to Saharareporters occurred when the convoy of the governor followed Market Road.
The mob threw sachets of water at the governor, shouting, "Allah ya iya Badaru," meaning, "To hell with you, Badaru."
It was gathered that the police escort used tear gas to disperse the rampaging mobs.
Abubakar's spokesperson, Bello Muhamamd Zaki, debunked the claim by some people that the governor's convoy was stoned.
