Na wa o. Whose side of the story is true? The Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has denied reports that he was attacked at the Eid Prayer Ground on Thursday during the prayers to mark the Eid-el-Kabir in Ilorin, Kwara State.
According to a statement by the Media Adviser, Yusuph Olaniyonu, the report was ” totally false and a figment of the imagination of those behind the story because the protest was never targeted at him, neither was any missile hurled at him. The Senate President arrived at the venue this morning without any incident, prayed with other Muslim faithful(s)…”
”We want to say that nothing can be further from the truth as the Senate President was never attacked nor was there any attempt made on his life to warrant him being ‘whisked away’ as reported by a section of the media. We however observe that there was a protest allegedly staged by local government employees over purported non-payment of salaries which hoodlums attempted to hijacked but this development was immediately curtailed by security agents.”
