A witness whose car was also torched by the rampaging mob, said another Peoples Democratic Party, PDP-branded car was also set alight.
The source, who only identified herself as Mrs. Rose, told Reporters that her Honda car was also smashed by the Buhari’s supporters
She said the road leading to the area was blocked by the rampaging youth, as they bashed other vehicles plying the route.
According to her, the incident occurred in the presence of members of the Special Taskforce on Jos crisis STF, who could not help stop the action of the youth.
The incident has generated tension within the state capital Jos, as residents rushed home for safety.
Folks,remember that North of Jos is dominated by Hausa/Fulanis. These set of people have been killing Christians in Jos for a time being now. These are the set of people whom Buhari asked after he failed the last election to kill and soak Nigerians in blood for voting a Christain in.
