Nigerian writer and ex-presidential aide, Reno Omokri has revealed the real reason President Muhammadu Buhari cancelled his trip to Zamfara state.
Omokri alleged that Buhari cancelled his visit to Zamfara because he was afraid of the surface-to-air-missiles in possession of the bandits.
The president who was scheduled to visit Zamfara State on Thursday, cancelled his trip and rescheduled it for next week.
According to Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle, the flight was cancelled due to bad weather conditions.
President Buhari was earlier expected to proceed to Zamfara from Sokoto State where he commissioned some projects rovided by the state government.
Reacting, Reno, a former presidential aide, said Buhari cancelled the trip because “bandits in Zamfara have Surface-to Air-Missiles”.
In a post on his Facebook page, Reno said, “the report that General Buhari cancelled his trip to Zamfara because of bad weather is false.
Buhari cancelled the trip because bandits in Zamfara have Surface-to Air-Missiles. Remember that on Sunday, July 18, 2021, they shot down an airforce jet in Zamfara!
“Buhari is now a victim of the kid-glove treatment he has been meting on bandits and herdsmen because they share ethnicity and religion with him.
“Compare the soft touch he gives them to the iron fist treatment he unleashed on IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho.”
