As we have been reporting, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, Nigeria’s former military ruler, narrowly escaped death when a bomb went off in the Kawo area of Kaduna state today, affecting his car.
He was reportedly on his way to Daura when the blast occurred, injuring some aides, although he was not hurt.
According to Jasper Azuatalam, a Buhari supporter and head of the Movement for Accountabilituly and Good Governance; “The bomb blast was said to be targeted at Buhari, as the bombers trailed his convoy and detonated the bomb very close to his convoy, injuring his security and personal aides. However, the General is in good condition apart from the trauma of the incidence.”
Azuatalam also shared this photo of the vehicle the general was allegedly riding in.
