Election: Knocks As Buhari’s Media Aide Tells CNN Viral Attack On Woman Happened In South-East

Ajuri Ngelale, one of the media aide to the Nigeria President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has claimed that the attack on Ruth Efidi, the woman who went viral on social media platforms after returning to polling unit with plastered face, occured in the South-East of the country.

The media aide to the president made this known while answering questions on incidents of violence recorded during Saturday’s general election in an interview with the newsmen.

Ngelale claimed that the woman who was stabbed in the eye was attacked in the South-East where Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi won massively in the election.

In the interview with CNN’s Zain Asher on Wednesday, when asked, Ngelale stated, “Interestingly, the woman you cited with her eyes shut, that was actually a vote that took place in the southeastern part of the country where you are from, right? That Peter Obi won.”

However, the claims stirred up reactions from tweeps shared by #ZainAsher, pointing out that the said woman was actually attacked in Surulere and has been paid a visit by some Lagos state politicians who were noted to have been supporting the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC Bola Tinubu.

Reacting to the claim, one of the tweep, identified as ENIBOY said, “#OneWorldCNN #ZainAsher, the lady who was attacked in the eye, was attacked in Lagos and not the southeast. She was visited by the PDP governorship candidate, Jandor, after the poll. Clearly Ajuri Ngelale wasn’t being completely truthful.”

Also, another AdrianObinna1 tweeted, “Ajuri lied to you. I hope you would correct this next time so the world knows the facts. There was no violence in the South East during the elections. The major violence took place in Lagos (APC’s stronghold) and in the South South (Rivers State).”

Virox-S added, saying, “Clearly #AjuriNgelale, you made two wrong statements. The woman was attacked in the SOUTHWEST where APC is the main party and secondly the upload by the BVAS is to be done AT THE POLLING UNIT by the PO, immediately after all the necessary signatures are applied. #ZainAsher.”

“#AjuriNgelale see yourself. You told a bare faced lie on international television. May you forever be known for what you are,” MamusWanogho tweeted.
