The president, who visited the state to inaugurate eight projects, arrived at the Aminu Kano International airport on Monday morning, and from there, he was conveyed by helicopter to the palace of the Emir of Kano, Aminu Bayero.

Despite the heavy security presence mounted on the routes leading to Ahmadu Bello way where Buhari was to launch Galaxy Backbone Limited’s project, angry youths holding stones of various sizes and wielding sticks attacked the president’s convoy and helicopter as it hovered above them.

The mammoth protesting youths were chanting “ba mu so” (we don’t want) as they set a bonfire of tires along Hotoro Road where the president had left after commissioning the Muhammadu Buhari Interchange.

The residents barricaded and burnt objects on the road, and they ran helter-skelter to avoid being caught by heavily armed security operatives who provided security for the President and his convoy.
