Residents of Borno on Wednesday booed President Muhammadu Buhari during his sympathy visit to the state.

Buhari, who returned from Ethiopia after attending the African Union summit, decided to visit Borno following an attack by Boko Haram terrorists, which left at least 30 persons dead.

However, as the President’s convoy drove through the city, he was met with boos and angry chants from residents of Maiduguri, the state capital. 

The residents, who spoke in Hausa language, could be heard chanting and screaming “Bama so, Bamayi” – meaning “We don’t want; we are not interested” when translated to English.

The hostile reception by the people echoes the feelings of many Nigerians already calling on the Nigerian Government to find a lasting solution to the incessant killings by terrorist groups and insurgents in the country.
