BEVERLY HILLS, February 13, (THEWILL) – Garba Shehu, presidential spokesman, says some politicians hired the crowd of people who booed President Muhammadu Buhari in Borno state on Wednesday.
THEWILL recalls that some residents of the state booed the president as his convoy made its way into Maiduguri on a condolence visit to the state over the killing of 30 citizens at Auno on Sunday.
In an interview with the Hausa service of the BBC, in Abuja, on Thursday, Shehu said only miscreants protested against the president’s visit.
“I was part of the delegation that entered Maiduguri right from the airport to the palace of the Shehu of Borno. The people came out to say thank you and welcome us,” Shehu said.
“But there was a group which came out shouting ‘we don’t want’. Some politicians gathered some miscreants and paid them money to boo Buhari.”
