President Mohammadu Buhari escaped being lynched at the National Mosque, Abuja by angry protesters suspected to be members of Islamic Movement of Nigeria.

The president, who came to the Mosque for the second time since his inauguration in 2015 for the wedding of his brother-in-law, Hamza, was attacked by a large group of irate worshippers immediately after the end of the Friday prayers.

Sensing the danger, security forces took over the situation and barricaded the president. The worshippers, shouting ‘you are a murderer, an unjust leader and hypocrite’, were blocked by the security. They continued saying ‘we’re ready to die, you can kill us all’.

It would seem that the irate protesters knew of coming of the President’s coming to the mosque, so they mobilized against him. Julius Berger had earlier in the day erected high barricades around the mosque, which gave out that the president was going to attend Hamza’s wedding.

LeadersNG learned that the president, who prayed sitting on a chair, indicating his fragile health status, was saved by the whiskers.

  1. Nigeria is a secular state and anything about religion should be regarded as a personal affair of the individual or group of individuals involved. President Buhari is not a president of moslems and he should be seen as a bridge builder and not a moslem cleric so anyone caught in this melee should not be treated kid’s gloves.

  2. Tinubu quest to become powerful and relevant has brought this killings, pain, suffering and hardship to this nation. He is having a big share in the blood of the innocent. He is also a blood sucker and as guilty as president.
