President Muhammadu Buhari's visit to Kano State on Monday was marred by protests, with some going as far as hurling stones at his helicopter.
Security personnel had been stationed across the metropolis ahead of the president's visit to inaugurate eight development projects.
Buhari arrived at the Aminu Kano International airport in the morning and was transported by helicopter to the palace of the Emir of Kano, Aminu Bayero.
Despite the heavy security presence on the routes leading to Ahmadu Bello way where the President was to launch Galaxy Backbone Limited’s project, protesters wielding clubs and stones reportedly attacked the president's convoy and helicopter as it hovered above them.
Some of the youths struggled with security operatives as the convoy made its way into their midst.
To contain the situation, teargas canisters had to be fired to disperse the mob.
It was reported that the irate youths were heard shouting "Ba ma yi" (Down with you) and evaded capture as the security personnel chased them.
Conversely, President Buhari's visit to to Kumbotso did not record any attack by protesters as he was effectively boxed in by the security operatives who apparently did not want to take further chances.
