A large crowd overwhelmed the Security, at the venue of President Muhammadu Buhari’s election campaign, in Jos, the Plateau State capital, on Saturday, forcing the President to leave the venue, without giving a speech.
After arriving the Rwang Pam Stadium, it took the President almost 30 minutes to reach his seat, as Security personnel pushed back the crowd, and struggled to make way for him.
Later, the crowd, believed to be mostly supporters of the All Progressives Congress, APC, surged towards the podium, while some climbed the top of vehicles in the entourage of Buhari.
As Security personnel battled unsuccessfully to push the crowd back, Buhari left the venue of the rally, without delivering his speech.
He was led away through the rear exit.
Governor Simon Lalong and the the Director-General of the Buhari/Osinabajo Campaign Organisation, Rotimi Amaechi, were not also able to deliver any speech at the venue, due to the troubled crowd, they made their way out of the exit door.
The President was only able to wave to party supporters, as he hurried out.
