Protesters on Wednesday booed Pres. Buhari when he traveled to Maiduguri, Borno State, to sympathize over recent Boko Haram attacks.
A video circulated on social media showed protesters on the road while the president’s convoy drove past.
“Buhari, we don’t like you. We don’t want you anymore,” the protesters chanted in Hausa. Mr Buhari had travelled to the state directly from Addis Ababa where he went for an African Union programme.
“He is paying a sympathy visit to the government and people of Borno following the recent horrific incident in which BH terrorists killed several travelers,” Garba Shehu, Mr Buhari’s spokesperson wrote.
Mr Shehu made reference to the recent Boko Haram attack in Auno where over 30 travellers were killed by Boko Haram after their vehicles were stopped from entering Maiduguri after 5:00 p.m by soldiers.
The Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, had blamed the military for the attack. “We have made repeated plea to the military to re-establish a base in Auno since it is one of the flashpoints of the Boko Haram, but nothing has been done to that effect,” the governor said.
