Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, was attacked Sunday afternoon, Daily Post reports.
The incident occurred at Ohaji area of the state.
Upon the governor’s arrival at the area, youths of Mmahu community repeatedly shouted “Onye Oshi Vote, Onye Oshi Vote” (meaning “thief of votes” in Igbo language).
They threw bottles and sticks at the convoy.
Uzodinma’s bulletproof vehicle was damaged.
The governor could not attend the function he went for at Ohaji.
His security details stopped him from alighting from his vehicle due to the tensed atmosphere.
The operatives then made a detour and whisked Uzodinma away to safety.
