Nigeria news learnt that members of the Presidential Guards Brigade were seen moving towards the airport after conducting rehearsal at the Arcade in Abuja.
Buhari’s prolonged absence sparked protests both in Nigeria and London, with demonstrators asking for his resumption or resignation.
He left Nigeria on May 7 for the second round of his medical treatment in London after receiving 82 Chibok school girls freed from among the almost 300 abducted by Boko Haram in 2014.
