No Criminal Charge against Young Man Allegedly Attempting to Attack PMB in Viral Video

The presidency in nigeria said the young man was only elated at the sight of President Buhari

It appears that the young man in the viral video clip allegedly heading to attack President Muhammadu Buhari in Argungu, Kebbi State on Thursday would not be facing any charge for attempted assault on the president.

This was because the presidency said it sees the young man as an eager supporter of the president who wanted to have a handshake and, perhaps, a hug with his hero.

Buhari was in Kebbi State on Thursday to declare open the Argungu Fishing and Cultural Festival.

Adesina downplayed the incidence, saying the man only overzealous

A statement by the president’s spokesman, Mr Femi Adesina, late Thursday night, said a young man had attempted to greet the president at a closed range but was prevented by security officials.

Mr. Adesina however failed to explain why the president’s admirer had to be shot on the leg by security operatives, neither did he say whether the presidency would be responsible for his treatment.

The presidential spokesman said: “As the President went round the arena to inspect rice pyramids on display, and take photographs with farmers, a young man was so very excited to see his President so close. He made an attempt to get to him.

”World over, such would not be allowed by security details. The young man was prevented, and he protested that he should be allowed to greet his President.

”Now, professional contortionists are making mischief of the event. They are passing the video clip off on social media as an attempt to attack the President.

“Malicious people always twist things to give a negative narrative. But they simply dash their heads against the wall. The country moves on.”
