A former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, was embarrassed by a thug, Ise Aye, at a polling unit 047 on Kaffi/Sunday Adigun Street, Alausa, Ikeja while the politician was in the process of doing his accreditation.
The Punch newspaper reports that the thug who had clearly defined scars on his face and tattoos all over his body, shouted at the governor and accused him of neglecting some of the youths in the area.
While shouting in Yoruba, he said, “You abandoned us here. The leaders here did not give us money. I know what I have suffered in the hands of the PDP all because I refused to join them. We remained loyal to the APC because of your late mother (Iya Mogaji) that lived here.
“Anytime I come here looking for money, they refer me to Bourdillon in Ikoyi but no one allows me to enter your mansion.”
Tinubu, insulted by the outburst, described Ise Aye as an untrained young man lacking in wisdom.
He said, “Do you have any sense at all? Is that how you were trained to talk to elders. Get out of here, you are embarrassing me.”
The young man then apologized and prostrated for Tinubu.
