The spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party presidential campaign organisation, Senator Dino Melaye, has reacted to the alleged attack on President Muhammadu Buhari in Kano State.

Reports had it that some irate youths in Kano State, on Monday, hauled stones at the advance convoy of President Buhari and helicopter during an official visit to the state.

It was learnt that in spite of the heavy security presence mounted on the routes leading to Ahmadu Bello way where the President was to launch one of the projects, the protesting youths had time to embarrass the President.

Reacting to the development in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Monday, Melaye claimed that the alleged fight between the President and the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, was the reason for the incident.

The former lawmaker said the attack was allegedly sponsored by Tinubu to embarrass President Buhari, adding that the plot to attack Buhari was orchestrated in Burdillon, home of the APC flag bearer.

He posted: “The fight between Tinubu and Buhari is entering a new dimension. The attack in Kano was properly coordinated and funded allegedly by Asiwaju.

“The meeting to push Buhari to submission or face sponsored attack in the north was said to be hatched in Burdillon. Me, I am busy with Atiku.”
