Meanwhile, Naija News on Tuesday received the news that some gun-wielding terrorists opened fire on the convoy of President Muhammadu Buhari in his home state this evening.
The development was confirmed to newsmen by the president’s spokesman, Garba Shehu.
Though the presidential aide noted that his principal was not in the convoy at the time of the attack but security operatives and an advance team heading for Daura, Buhari’s hometown, ahead of Sallah, were attacked near Dutsinma in Katsina.
He said the attack was repelled by gallant presidential guards.
“The Presidency has described as sad and unwelcome, the shooting incident near Dutsinma, Katsina State, at the convoy of cars carrying the Advance Team of security guards, protocol and media officers ahead of the President, Muhammadu Buhari’s trip to Daura for Sallah.
“The attackers opened fire on the convoy from ambush positions but were repelled by the military, police and DSS personnel accompanying the convoy.
“Two persons in the convoy are receiving treatment for the minor injuries they suffered. All the commissioner, staff and vehicles made it safely to Daura,” Shehu said in a statement.
It was, however, uncertain if any security personnel was killed during the attack.
