During President Muhammadu Buhari’s official visit to Kano State on Monday, a few irate young people threw rocks at his advance convoy.
The Kano city has increased security when the president visited the state to dedicate eight development projects.
The President flew by helicopter from the Aminu Kano International Airport to the palace of the Emir of Kano, Aminu Bayero. The President arrived at the airport in the morning.
However, in spite of the heavy security presence mounted on the routes leading to Ahmadu Bello way where the President was to launch Galaxy Backbone Limited’s project, angry youths holding stones of various sizes and wielding sticks reportedly attacked Buhari’s convoy and helicopter as it hovered above them.
Videos circulated on social media showed the moment the irate youths pelted stones at the helicopter believed to be conveying the President.
In one video, people were seen fighting fiercely with some unidentified security personnel as a truck passed through their area.
With another video, a road covered in stones was seen as teargas canisters were fired to disperse the enraged crowd.
However, the President’s trip to Kumbotso did not record any attack by any mob, as he was sandwiched by security operatives, who comprised heavily armed soldiers aboard motorised Toyota Hilux and was also supported by armed mobile police special forces.
