President Goodluck Jonathan’s convoy was on Thursday stoned in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, a Yola-based source told SaharaReporters.
Jonathan was in the state in continuation of his presidential campaign that is widely being resisted following his 2011 promise that he will be a one-term president.
President Jonathan is bracing himself for a tough presidential election in mid-February. Former military ruler Muhammedu Buhari of the opposition APC is mounting fierce campaign aimed at defeating the man “who has made Nigeria weak” as evidenced in the country’s inability to wipe out Boko Haram terrorist group.
According to the source, angry protesters were chanting anti-Jonathan songs, and condemned his failure to crush Boko Haram fighters.
The protesting citizens also destroyed cars and other valuables before security overpowered them in the course of the protest.
Mobile policemen were said to have sprayed teargas on the protesters.
As at the time of this report, the police are yet to react officially regarding the incident.
