Senator Obanikoro had condemned the stoning of General Muhammadu Buhari in Lagoson Fridayafter the news of his stoning broke via online news media platforms and went viral across the social media.

The APC on Friday through its spokesperson, Lai Mohammed denied the report stating that General Buhari was not stoned but rather received cheers from bystanders.

However, Senator Obanikoro in a statementon Friday issued by Ohimai Amaize, his Special Adviser on Media Strategy, noted that the APC’s denial of Buhari’s stoning in Lagos was not only pointless and futile but also does not give the APC any advantage.
“When things go wrong, we must acknowledge and condemn it in order to forestall any future occurrences.
“Senator Obanikoro, based on eyewitness accounts is aware of the stoning incident at Idumagbo area of Isale-Eko, Lagos State and the fact that a woman was injured in the ensuing fracas after General Buhari's security detail had to shoot into the air to dispel the irate mob”, the statement noted.
