Some residents, mostly youths who took to the streets disguised as supporters, Wednesday, booed President Muhammadu Buhari’s convoy as it drove in and when it was leaving Maiduguri, Borno State, during a condolence visit. The residents were heard shouting in Hausa “Bama so, ka samu a kunya.” Meaning “We don’t want you, because you have disappointed us.”
Buhari’s aircraft touched down at Air Force Base in Maiduguri at about 12:45p.m. on Wednesday, for a condolence visit, following the recent Boko Haram attack that claimed over 50 lives, with the destruction of houses, vehicles and shops last Sunday.
The president had described the attack as cowardly and murderous, stressing his commitment to stamp out the crisis. He was received by Governor Babagana Zulum, members of the state executive council and other top politicians. Buhari paid homage to the Shehu of Borno, His Eminence, Alhaji Abubakar Garbai El-Kanemi, where he consoled the monarch over the demise of his younger sister, late Yamaira of Borno, as well as the government and people of the state over the loss of lives in the Auno Boko Haram massacre.
