A former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, was verbally attacked by a thug while he was been his accredited at polling unit in Adigun Street, Alausa, Ikeja.
The thug who goes by the name Ise Aye, hurled insults at Bola Tinubu, accusing the APC chieftain of neglecting some of the youths in the area.
According to Punch, the thug who had scars on his face and tattoos all over his body blasted Tinubu for refusing to reward the loyalty of several youths who had remained APC supporters despite efforts of the PDP to gain their support.
He said: “You abandoned us here. The leaders here did not give us money. I know what I have suffered in the hands of the PDP all because I refused to join them. We remained loyal to the APC because of your late mother (Iya Mogaji) that lived here.
“Anytime I come here looking for money, they refer me to Bourdillon in Ikoyi but no one allows me to enter your mansion.”
Bola Tinubu could not hide his embarrassment after the incident. He described Ise Aye as an untrained young man lacking in wisdom.
He said, “Do you have any sense at all? Is that how you were trained to talk to elders. Get out of here, you are embarrassing me.”
Bola Tinubu also took time out to address journalists after the accreditation exercise. He admitted that the accreditation delayed for few minutes but added that it still remained the best option to guard against rigging.
