Nigerians on social media are ranting over a video showing President Muhammadu Buhari visiting his cows in Daura, Katsina State, barely hours after hundreds of boys were kidnapped by bandits in the state.
The over one minute video posted on social media on Monday by Sahara Reporters, shows Buhari with his aides touring his ranch, allegedly less than 24-hours after the abduction of the boys.
PlatinumPost had reported that pupils of Government Boys Science Secondary School in Kankara Local Government Area of Katsina State were abducted by gunmen who came on motorbikes around 11 pm on Friday night.
Angry Nigerians attacked the President’s move, who is also in Katsina State, for failing to visit the school but rather sent a delegation from Abuja to visit the school and sympathise with the families of the victims.
Watch Video below:
Reacting to the video, Sahara Reporters Publisher, Omoyele Sowore tweeted, “600 Students got kidnapped in Katsina and he ignored them instead the lifeless President went to visit his cows! The moment we get it that the Buhari regime can’t be redeemed we will come to the inevitable conclusion that #Buharimustgo.”
Other Nigerians reacted with mixed reactions with tweets as thus:
Actually i am not surprised but the joke is on any southerner that still defend him. A lot of resources have been soent on defending his regime than defending the lives and properties he promised to protect after laying hand on the Koran and taking an oath

Regardless of your party affiliations, if this doesn’t irk you, I hope you realise there’s nothing left of your humanity and you’re gradually becoming a cow yourself!

The man has missed his cows. What a happy family reunion! I’m happy for them.
Those who miss their kidnapped children should find a way to get to them. Buhari missed his cows and he came all the way from Abuja to see them.
Sai Baba! 🙌🙌

I doubt if this is latest video. The man is probably sick, they wanted to use old video so as not to allow Nigerians to know his current state of health.
Do a thorough investigation, please.

This Buhari here is full of energy, walking very fast and he have refused to visit the scene of the abducted children or even address the people he is leading.
Why is the guy recording the video avoiding making a full video of him. Something is definitely fishy here.
