Some angry youths in Kano State, on Monday, hauled stones at the helicopter of President Muhammadu Buhari, during an official visit to Kano State.
NEWSBREAK reports that security had been beefed up across the Kano metropolis as the president visited the state to inaugurate some projects.
Buhari arrived at the Aminu Kano International airport in the morning and from there, he was conveyed by helicopter to the palace of the Emir of Kano, Aminu Bayero.
However, in spite of the heavy security presence mounted on the routes leading to Ahmadu Bello way where the President was to launch Galaxy Backbone Limited’s project, angry youths holding stones of various sizes attacked Buhari’s convoy and helicopter as it hovered above them, according to Punch.
The protesting youths shouted “ba ma yi” (down with you).
Apart from the stone-hauling moment, the disgruntled youths also barricaded some roads, to express their anger against the hardship being experienced in the country.
Earlier on Monday, youths in Benin, Edo State, protested against the persistent scarcity of fuel in the state and across Nigeria, as well as the unbearable hike in price of the product by some independent marketers.
