President Muhammad Buharı's visit to his home state, Katsina, today, January 26, was rocked by protests.

Daily Trust reported that residents of the state who averred that the economic policy of the present administration is not working, took their protest to Kofar Kaura, Kofar Kwaya and Yahaya Madaki way. They also expressed anger over the naira redesign policy, fuel scarcity, inflation and insecurity.

A resident of the area told Daily Trust;

“My name is Mustapha Muhammad Boss. What happened was after President Muhammadu Buhari has commissioned the underpass, some youths which we don’t know where they came from, begin to chant ‘Bamuyi’, stoning security operative and branded APC’ vehicles as well as setting tyres on fire.

“That is why as you can see, we decided to close our shops for safety. This act is improper and condemnable, because itiis affecting those that have nothing to do either with the visit or the party.”

ThisDay reported that some of the protesters started throwing stones at the crowd shortly after President Buhari inaugurated some selected projects executed by the state government.

While burning tyres along Yahaya Madaki way, few metres away from the newly inaugurated underpass project, they kept chanting “We don’t need you”, “We no go do”, “We are not supporting APC”. They were dispersed by security personnel who fired teargas.

An eyewitness, Abdul Suleiman, told the publication that the protesters were chanting ‘Bamuyi’ (a hausa word meaning ‘we are not interested’) and started stoning some vehicles at the venue.

He said;

“Shortly after President Muhammadu Buhari inaugurated the underpass, some residents of this area came out and started throwing stones at some vehicles at the venue. Before we knew it, they started burning tyres on the road”.

It was also reported that some of the residents booed President Buhari along the IBB way within the Katsina metropolitan area when the convoy of the president was heading to the newly constructed Revenue House for inauguration.

The Police and other security operatives dispersed the protesters with teargas and normalcy has returned to the areas.
