Boko Haram Attack: Major Gen. Buhari booed in Maiduguri

Boko Haram hits Maiduguri after Buhari’s departure.

'Ba ma so' means we don't want you again.

Very visibly angry youths and citizens of Nigeria in Maiduguri protesting against the negligence of the Major Gen. Buhari administration to the security. The message is clear. "We don't want", "We don't want". We hope that the @NGRPresident @MBuhari realizes how bad the security in the country is.
With helicopters flying , roads lined with security personnel almost every meter. All major roads closed, yet the people of the state booed the dictatorial president Muhammadu Buhari as he visited that state to condole withe the government and people of Borno state over that latest attack by the government acclaimed defeated and degraded dreaded Boko Haram terrotrists.

Major Gen. Buhari, upon returning from a five-day trip to Ethiopia for an African Union summit, paid a condolence visit to the north-eastern state, following a terrorists strike.
The recent attack on Auno by suspected Boko Haram insurgents killed at least 30 people including infants. The Residents of Maiduguri crowded onto the streets to boo at the presidential convoy on Buhari's sympathy visit to the state in the wake of latest Boko Haram attacks on travellers

Buhari and his aides had repeatedly told Nigerians that Boko Haram was defeated, the terrorists killed 30 and abducted several women and children in a raid last Sunday. The attack reportedly targeted the village of Auno on a key highway, linking Maiduguri.

Not less than 18 vehicles comprising trailers, buses, and cars were said to have been burnt by the insurgents, who laid siege on their village about 9.50 pm on Sunday.

In a video making round the internet, people of the state are seen saying 'Ba ma so' which mean we don't want you . Residents, including children, could be seen expressing their disapproval as the President’s convoy drove past.

Buhari, according to the INEC result of the 2019 presidential election, scored almost a million votes from the state.

As the president left the Borno state, Boko Hram terrorist have reportedly attacked another town of the state. Residents of Jiddari Polo in Maiduguri, Borno state capital, are running for cover following an attack launched by Boko Haram fighters.

The attack happened hours after President Muhammadu Buhari paid a condolence visit to the people of the state over the killing of 30 persons on Sunday.

A resident told reporters that the insurgents have been shooting sporadically for over 30 minutes.

“We are under serious attack right now. Boko Haram stormed the town hours after the president left,” he said.

During the visit to the state, at the palace of Shehu of Borno Abubakar Elkanemi, president Buhari had said Boko Haram could not thrive without local support.

“This Boko Haram or whatever they are, cannot come up to Maiduguri or environs without the local leadership knowing because traditionally the local leadership is in charge of security in their own respective areas. So with my understanding of our culture, I wonder how Boko Haram survives up till now,” he had said.

Boko Haram has continue to inflict hardship on residents of north-eastern states, despite efforts of the government to put the group in check.

The frequency of the attacks made federal lawmakers and some Nigerians to demand the removal of service chiefs.

But in an interview with TheCable and THISDAY/ARISE, Tukur Buratai, chief of army staff, said Buhari should not be pushed into sacking his service chiefs.

“I am tempted not to comment on this particular issue because I am directly involved. However, I want to believe that whatever happens, the commander-in-chief is the right arbiter, and he knows where it pinches, he knows where the problems are. I think the decision should be left to him. He should not be pushed or prompted in this regard,” he had said.
