“They hacked down many of them and forcefully snatched their phones. They gate crashed into the venue and started stabbing anyone along their path. Many sustained injuries in the heads and on their bodies.
“Some of the thugs were cutting down people and charging towards the podium, and others were heading towards the VIP platform where Atiku Abubakar and other dignitaries were stationed.
“People started running away, until Dino and myself picked the mic and ginger the crowd to stay back and defy the armed thugs. Then the mass of the people fought back. Also, Senator Ningi mobilised some of the vigilantes on-site to go after the violent thugs.
“Over fifty people were injured and taken for treatment. Arrests were made by the security agents. Despite the shedding of blood, the rally was held successfully.
