JUST IN: Presidency Releases Statement On The Deadly Attack Of President Buhari By Angry Protesters At The Abuja National Mosque


JUST IN: Presidency Releases Statement On The Deadly Attack Of President Buhari By Angry Protesters At The Abuja National Mosque

The Presidency, has on Tuesday, dismissed as untrue, reports that President Muhammadu Buhari was attacked last Friday, and barely escaped being lynched by suspected irate members of the Shiites Movement of Nigeria, at the National Mosque, Abuja.

It said that no right-thinking group will contemplate such an action, considering the security implication of doing so.
Specifically, online reports had it that the President, who came to the Mosque for the second time since his inauguration, in 2015, for the wedding of his brother-in-law, Hamza, was attacked by a large group of the irate worshippers, immediately after the end of the Friday prayers.
However other reports said that the security operatives attached to the President, sensing the danger, quickly warded off the attackers and swiftly created a barricade, which provided a shield for the President.
The worshippers, who it was gathered were shouting, “you are a murderer, an unjust leader, and a hypocrite”, were blocked by the security operatives, even as the members insisted that, “we are ready to die, you can kill us all”.
It would seem that the irate protesters had foreknowledge of the President’s coming to the Mosque, and had mobilized against him.
Julius Berger had earlier in the day, erected high barricades around the Mosque, which gave out that the President was going to attend Hamza’s wedding.
However, reacting, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Garba Shehu, described ‎the attack on President Buhari, as untrue.
“People do not notice what has been going on around them. The Shiites have been doing this in about five selected Mosques in the FCT, for several months.
“So, there is nothing extraordinary about it. They have always chanted for the freedom of their Leader in several Mosques, over a long period of time for several months.
“So, the fact that the President was in the National Mosque, did not make any difference. They would have done it without him anyway, because they have done it every Friday. They (Shiites) were just chanting slogans.
