Mr . Kayode Ogundamisi , a member of the Directorate of Media and Strategic Communication of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Team , has criticised the governor of Ogun State , Ibikunle Amosun , over a Facebook post, he shared concerning the violence that broke out at the rally on Monday .

On his verified Twitter handle , Ogundamisi said , “You endangered the lives of all who attended the event and particularly that of President Muhammadu Buhari and that of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo over what really ?

He added , “Least you should have done is apologise , but no , you still have the gut to tweet the above . Whatever goodwill you had is gone . ”

Violence had broken out at the Abeokuta venue of the APC rally, which saw the National Chairman of the party , Mr . Adams Oshiomhole pelted with stones and sachet water and President Buhari being shielded by security operatives , so he would not be harmed.

Taking to his official Facebook page , Amosun shared a post, which detailed the series of events at the rally and what led to the violence .

In the post, which he has since deleted , Amosun said , “The crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress in Ogun State boiled over today ( Monday ) when protests by party members marred the presidential campaign rally as party members booed the National Chairman of the party , Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, former Governor of Osun State , Ogbeni Raufu Aregbesola and Director General of the APC Presidential Campaign , Rotimi Amaechi.

“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu , for the first time in the APC Presidential campaign , declined to make a speech at the event as he exited the venue through the backdoor as President Muhammadu Buhari made his speech .

“President Buhari , as he did at the presidential rally of the APC in Owerri , Imo State , asked members of the party in the state to vote for any candidate of their choice apart from the presidential election .

“Trouble started early in the rally shortly after President Muhammadu Buhari made a triumphant entry into the Moshood Abiola Stadium in company with the Vice President Yemi Oshinbajo , Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State and other chieftains of the APC .

“The Director General of the APC Presidential Campaign Council , Rotimi Amaechi in his opening remarks remarked that the rally was an APC campaign , a note that was received with a resounding shout of “ no”, ”no ” from the stands .

“ The protests got louder when the National Chairman of the party , Comrade Adams Oshiomhole came on board and disclosed that his mission was to introduce President Muhammadu Buhari and the governorship candidate of the party .

“The disclosure sent the stands into uproar and sachets of water were hauled in the direction of the party chairman where other party chieftains were seated .

“Governor Amosun had to step in to appeal to the party members to be calm and not “disgrace ” him before President Muhammadu Buhari . His repeated appeals fell on deaf ears and went into a crescendo at the insistence of Comrade Oshiomhole to present the party ’s flag to Prince Dapo Abiodun , further infuriated the party members .

“This led to uncontrollable heckling from the stands, forcing security men to erect a barricade around the President and other party chieftains .
