Buhari’s Visit to Born Prompted the Latest Attacks and Killing of Innocent Civilians in Maiduguri – Femi Adesina.
President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to Maiduguri, Borno, prompted the Boko Haram attack that murdered numerous innocent residents, says Femi Adesina, a presidential media aide.

“It was a sort of scaremongering,” the media aide claimed. “They wanted to frighten the president away. But they have forgotten that this president is a retired general.”
Adesina, who spoke on Channels TV on Sunday night, further noted that the terrorists attacked the airport to force the Buhari to cancel his visit.
“They’ve forgotten that he is a man who can stand on his own. They thought they could succeed in getting the president to cancel that visit.
