Hundreds of residents of Borno State on Wednesday booed President Buhari and his entourage during his ‘sympathy visit’ to the state.

Buhari and some top government officials were in Borno to sympathise with the government and people over the recent Boko Haram killings in the state.

The terrorists had on Sunday struck in Auno town in Borno State killing about 30 people and destroyed 18 vehicles while they also abducted some persons.

The president after his arrival from AU summit held in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia arrived Maiduguri on a ‘sympathy visit’.

President Buhari was, however, booed as he moved through the town. A video circulating on social media showed hundreds of people shouting “Ba ma so, ba ma yi” in the Hausa language.

The translation in English is “We don’t want, we are not interested.”

As Buhari’s convoy passed, the crowd booed while waving their hands in rejection.
