Oluremi Tinubu, a senator and wife of leader of the Action Congress of Nigeria,Bola Tinubu, and four other senators escaped death by the whiskers in Ibadan on Wednesday after angry mob attacked their convoy

The senators were travelling by road, led by police escorts, following the grounding of flights in airports across the country  as a result of the strike declared by labour unions to protest government’s cut of subsidy on fuel.  According to an eyewitness, the mob damaged five cars belonging to the senators, including police escort vans leading the convoy.

“The cars’ windscreens and windows were shattered and the senators’ valuable belongings were stolen by the mob,” an eyewitness said.  Mrs. Tinubu was on the trip with Olugbenga Ashafa (ACN Lagos state), Babafemi Ojudu (ACN Ekiti state), Babajide Omoworare (ACN Ekiti state) and a yet to be identified senator.

They all got stranded in Lagos Airport on Tuesday, missing the senate’s first plenary for the year.  They were hoping to risk the potholes-ridden bad road to Abuja and catch up with at least one plenary for the week.  When contacted on telephone, Mr. Ojudu complained he was not in “the right frame of mind” to narrate details of the incident.  The senators escaped the attack unhurt and areheading  back to Lagos to recover from the trauma.
