How Ahmadu Ali and Senator Ugbane Were Booed At Audu’s 8th Day Prayer

Former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Dr Ahmadu Ali and Senator Nicholas Ugbane were Sunday booed by angry mob at the 8th day Fidau prayers for the late All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Prince Abubakar Audu.

Ali was said to have driven into Audu’s residence at Ogbonicha, venue of the event to commiserate with the family, at about 1pm, but met more than he bargained for, as angry youths at the main entrance opposed his coming in.

When the youths recognised that it was him, they refused to open the gate for him as he was forced to make a detour.

While the argument ensued they began to boo him, calling him all sorts of unprintable names in Igala dialect, as they insisted that he will not be part of the Fidau prayers.

Ali it will be recalled threw numerous invectives at Audu during the electioneering campaign.

Ugbane, a former two-time commissioner under the administration of the late Audu and APC governorship aspirant, who drove in shortly after Ali was also seriously embarrassed by the angry youths.

It was gathered that as his driver had to hurriedly make a U-turn to escape being mobbed, as they hauled stones at his vehicle, one of which hit and smashed the windscreen.
