Angry Borno residents, on Wednesday, booed President Muhammadu Buhari when he travelled to Maiduguri to “sympathise” over recent Boko Haram attacks in the state.
A video circulated on social media showed hundreds of protesters including children on the road while the president’s convoy drove past.
The residents were heard shouting in Hausa “Bama so, Bama yi, ka samu a kunya.” Meaning “We don’t want you, we’re not interested because you have disappointed us.”
Buhari visited Maiduguri today & was Dishonored.
I witnessed the regrettable incidence. I was at the Airport road & stucked in the jam-packed holdup when he landed. There were not much crowds & all my ears could here was the chanting of the angry crowds yelling "Bama so,Bama so pic.twitter.com/ak7rdEsbQh
