President Goodluck Jonathan’s Campaign Bus Attacked And Set on Fire in Jos; Buhari Condemns Attacks


President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign bus was attacked and set on fire yesterday, January 10th, 2015 in Jos by angry youth who were chanting anti-Jonathan slogans.

The attackers were heard chanting “Sai Buhari” in support of presidential candidate Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

However Buhari has come out to condemn the attacks, stating via twitter:

”I have received news of violence in Jos today. I condemn this violence in its entirety. I reject any supporter who resorts to violence. Like I said after the attack on our supporters in Rivers this week, elections are not war. Electoral violence is unacceptable.”

“We can and we will bring #Change to Nigeria peacefully. I call on the PDP to join this call for peace. Every Nigerian life is sacred,” he added. ‎
