A governor in Nigeria who has been critical of President Olusegun Obasanjo, has been attacked in his car by a mob in the capital, Abuja.

The BBC’s Dan Isaacs in Lagos says that the attack, in which Governor Abdulkadir Kure was unhurt, was apparently carried out by supporters of other senior figures within the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP), to which Mr Kure also belongs.”
