The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, was booed and stoned at President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign rally in Abeokuta, Ogun State on Monday.

Trouble started when the APC National Chairman mentioned the name of the party’s governorship candidate in the state, Mr Dapo Abiodun, while addressing the crowd.

Upon hearing Mr Abiodun’s name, the crowd at the MKO Abiola International Stadium started booing Mr Oshiomhole with some throwing objects at him, prompting security operatives to surround him.

Many in the crowd were not appeased and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo had to be called to give a speech, leading to the return of calm at the venue of the rally.
