By Damilare Adeleye

The Presidency is yet to react to the alleged attack on President Muhammadu Buhari during his official visit to Kano State on Monday.

Reports has it that some angry youths hauled stones at the advance convoy of President Buhari and the helicopter conveying him during an official visit to the North West state.

However, in spite of the heavy security presence mounted on the routes leading to Ahmadu Bello way where President Buhari was to launch one of the projects, the protesting youths still had time to embarrass the President over the naira redesign and the initial January 31 deadline for old notes.

In a viral video, the protesting youths shouted “ba ma yi” (down with you) and ran helter-skelter to avoid being caught by heavily armed security operatives who provided security for the President and his convoy.

When contacted to react to the development, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, declined to comment, saying he does not have any information about the incident.

Garba Shehu explained that he was not on the delegation during the time of the reported attack.
