Some residents of Borno state booed President Muhammadu Buhari as his convoy made its way into Maiduguri on Wednesday.
Buhari, who had been in Ethiopia since Friday for the African Union summit, headed straight to Borno to condole with the people over the latest Boko Haram attack.
On Sunday, about 30 people were killed in an attack at Auno, near Maiduguri.
As the convoy of the president made its way, some residents shouted in Hausa: “Bama so!” “Bamayi!”, which translates to “We don’t want; we’re not interested.”
Borno is a stronghold of the president. During his previous visits to the state, crowds lined up on the streets, chanting “Sai baba!”
Commenting on the hostile reception that Buhari got on Wednesday, a Twitter user wrote: “If what I’ve been hearing from the people welcoming President Buhari to Maiduguri is all but to judge, then the people of Borno are not happy. Just an opposite of his earlier Visits. “Bama so” “Bamayi!” This is really serious. There must be a change of strategy in Fighting BH.”
The People chanting “bama so” meaning we don’t want to the President’s convoy.
Maiduguri used to go agog with celebration whenever the President visits but now it’s Booing him.
This is a clear message . The People are fed up & need change in the Security Situation pic.twitter.com/wpUGO1DAn3
