A letter of suspension from the college which was sighted by SaharaReporters on Thursday stated that the student, whose name had yet to be ascertained, was suspended for one week from June 21 to June 28 over the action.

“You are expected to report back to college on the 28th of June 2021 along with your parent or guardian.”

It had been exposed that the governor considered the spending necessary to ensure that the Nigerian leader was not booed during his official visit to the state on Thursday.

“When President Buhari visited Lagos last week, they had to fly him over the city in a chopper because of a hostile crowd,” another source had added.

Governor Zulum had earlier urged residents to show appreciation to President Buhari during his visit.

The governor in a statewide broadcast on Tuesday gave reasons the people of the state should honour the President when he arrived in Maiduguri.

Borno is the epicentre of insurgency war in Nigeria.

The state has been at the end of incessant deadly attacks by terrorist groups–Boko Haram and the Islamic State West African Province (ISWAP), and many residents have grown frustrated with the Buhari government.

Ahead of his election in 2015, Buhari promised to defeat Boko Haram but six years into his government, that promise has not been fulfilled.

In February 2020, residents of the state booed the President as his convoy drove in and when it was leaving Maiduguri, Borno State, during a condolence visit.

The residents were heard shouting in Hausa “Bama so, ka samu a kunya.” Meaning “We don’t want you, because you have disappointed us.”

Buhari, during his recent visit to Borno, however, said he was committed to serving Nigerians as a result of the love shown to him.
