Hmmmmm. Strange. First time am hearing that Buhari is traveling with his wife. Leah SHARIBU is still in the hands of Boko haram terrorists. Deborah Samuel the Christian girl killed and lynched by Northern youths. K9 train passengers still being held in the bush by AREWA CONSULTATIVE TERRORISTS. Fake military camps being set up by rehabilitated Boko haram terrorists in Benue, South West, South East and South South. It pricks my mind looking at foolish Nigerians waving at Buhari as he boards plane flying out of  Nigeria he set on fire.
