Security operatives have arrested two unidentified youths who angrily booed at Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, in Azare Local Government Area of of the state.
The incident occurred on Thursday when Governor Mohammed was inspecting the projects awarded by his administration at the Urban Primary Health Care centre in Azare.
The Nation reports that during the inspection, two youths, not minding the presence of security personnel, shouted “Ba mayi!” in Hausa language, which translates to “we are not supporting you.”
Though Mohammed did not bat an eyelid, the duo were given a hot chase by security agents, who gave them resounding slaps before shoving them into the police van.
A member of the Rapid Response Squad of the Bauchi Police Command, who confirmed the arrest, faulted the audacity of the youth saying it’s disrespectful.
”Just imagine, how will you tell a Governor to his face that you don’t want him and you are not in support of his government, it’s an insult,” he said.
It could not be ascertained whether they were later released or not as at the time of filing this report.
