VIDEO: Commuters beat up lady for 'jokingly' saying APC's Tinubu will win election


A viral video has captured the moment a Nigerian woman was harassed inside a bus in Lagos by her fellow passengers after she said Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will win the 2023 election.


The woman was tearful after being reportedly assaulted by some other passengers on the bus for allegedly rooting for Tinubu. The video did not capture when she was assaulted but the caption said, “She jokingly said Tinubu will win the election. And they beat her up in the bus.”


In the video, the lady tearfully said she was “just joking”.


The video shows that some other passengers were upset that despite the hardship Nigerians are currently experiencing under President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC government, the woman had the audacity to campaign for the party’s candidate in the February poll.


“The way Nigeria is, everybody is angry. You go open your mouth and say Tinubu,” one of the angry passengers said.


The passengers may have also been triggered by the present socio-economic challenges in Nigeria occasioned by the scarcity of Naira notes and fuel.
