A group of angry youths Thursday, stoned President Goodluck Jonathan’s electioneering convoy in Yola, Adamawa State, breaking windows on some of the vehicles. According to the Associated Press, the youths were angry with President Jonathan for his failure to stem the tide of insurgency that has bedevilled the North-eastern part of the country.
Police used tear gas and whips to disperse the crowd.
Soldiers guarded billboards and posters of Jonathan. Yola is housing tens of thousands of people driven from their homes in the five-year insurgency.
