On Sunday, thugs attacked a bus conveying a press crew covering the Lagos State Governor's Office between Ebute-Ero and Adeniji, Iga-Iduganran axis on Lagos Island, leaving two journalists severely wounded and others sustained injuries.
The press crew bus, which was part of the convoy of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, was attacked by thugs who threw heavy stones at it as it joined other vehicles conveying dignitaries, including Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, and others, who had just left the palace of Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwanu Akiolu at about 15:00hrs.
Available reports indicate that the press crew bus was heavily attacked by the hoodlums, as it drove at high speed to escape while journalists had to lie low in it for many to escape being injured, but still few others still had bruises.
However, a Western Post correspondent, Adeola Ogunrinde and Omatseye Atsenuwa of Smooth 98.1FM got wounded, while Adedoja Salam of TVC went into shock due to the heavy bombardment of stones and bricks thrown at the press crew bus, leaving the windscreen and nearly all the side screens broken.
