Angry youths in Kano have on Monday staged a protest following President Muhammadu Buhari’s state visit to commission projects in the state.
Youths carrying sticks and throwing stones were dispersed by security agents who fired shots in the air to scare them away.
The mammoth crowd chanted “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.
This is coming a few days after a similar incident occurred in Katsina, the president’s hometown.
Reports have it that some sections of all the four major roads leading the newly constructed Muhammadu Buhari Interchange Flyover were closed for two days in anticipation of the president’s visit.
In video clips circulated on social media, other youths were seen throwing pebbles at the president’s helicopter.
