Sept 24, 2015 – Pictures: Saraki Stoned! Senate President Attacked In Ilorin Kwara State During Muslims Eid Prayers
It was a show of shame for embattled Nigerian Senate President Olubukola Saraki today in Ilorin, the capital city of Kwara state.
According to eyewitnesses, Saraki was stoned this morning during Eids prayers.
It was a bit of chaos when some youths chanting Ole (thief) pelted him with bags of pure water and stones.
Those who shared in Saraki’s suffering today were Ibrahim Sulu Gambari (Ilorin’s Emir) Bolaji Abdulahhahi, Kawu Baraje and Razak Atunwa as they were all in the VIP area when attackers stormed the prayer ground.
The big stones thrown in their direction teared down an iron-barricade meant to shield him and other dignitaries.
In the midst of the confusion, Saraki’s bodyguards quickly whisked him away from the prayer ground to prevent further attacks.
