ALLEGED ATTACK ON PRESIDENT BUHARI IN KEBBI: CONTORTIONISTS AT WORK AGAIN

President Muhammadu Buhari was in Kebbi State Thursday to declare open the Argungu Fishing and Cultural Festival. It was the first time the international tourism event would hold in eleven years, as security considerations had rendered it impracticable.

As the President went round the arena to inspect rice pyramids on display, and take photographs with farmers, a young man was so very excited to see his President so close. He made an attempt to get to him.

World over, such would not be allowed by security details. The young man was prevented, and he protested that he should be allowed to greet his President. Now, professional contortionists are making mischief of the event. They are passing the video clip off on social media as an attempt to attack the President.

Malicious people always twist things to give a negative narrative. But they simply dash their heads against the wall. The country moves on.

  1. I just gave this same explanation on seeing the video in another platform just now.

    Here is my comment therein:

    “Though, I don’t understand Hausa, but from the dash of the guy, he was moving towards the second person to the right hand side of Buhari like he wants to forcefully be part of the photograph session.
    You may wish to watch again.
    Thanks.”

  2. That is what they are and that is the only profession they know. That does not look like the boy was attacking the President. Everyone one there was laughing at the boy but some people – few of them, can distort things to malign. Allah ya sauwaqa

  3. Demi Adesina should use more civil language to address Nigerians. We were not all there to know the facts! The video is obviously authentic, but not well interpreted. It’s your job to say what actually happened and not castigate Nigerians for their legitimate concerns!
