Senate president, Bukola Saraki, has denied he was never stoned
at the Eid Prayer Ground during the prayers to mark the Eid-el-Kabir in Ilorin earlier today as reported in the media.
Senate President who spoke through his media office added that he 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.
Saraki said he had earlier spoke with reporters at the prayer ground as he arrived in the company of the Emir of Ilorin, His Royal Highness (HRH), Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu Gambari, Speaker of the Kwara State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon Ali Ahmad and a former Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Alfa Belgore.
“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.
