Eyewitnesses at the scene of the incident, alleged that the protest degenerated into ethnic crisis as Hausas and Igbos started stoning each other at Wuse Market, Abuja.
PDP’s former Youth leader, Deji Adeyanju tweeted, “We just went to Wuse market for mobilization against 100 days event tomorrow & a regular face at Unity Fountain brought thugs to attack us.”
“Charly Boy came to this market with some cameramen doing his protest here.
I was standing in front of my shop when I saw him running for his dear life, being chased by those youth,” a trader at the market said.
“They nearly lynched him, because those youth almost overpowered police security near him.”
The musician was rescued by security operatives who fired gunshots and tear-gas to disperse the crowd.
“Charly Boy caused it, how can he come here to be talking against Buhari.
Those Hausa boys dealt with him,” a meat seller in the market who witnessed the incident said.
Adeyanju also claimed in another tweet that Charly Boy’s car was damaged by the thugs that attacked the group.
