A man had to be rushed and restrained after he charged towards President Muhammadu Buhari during the Argungu Festival in Kebbi State.
President Buhari was posing for photos with other dignitaries on Thursday, March 12, when the incident happened.
See the video below as posted by FFK with the caption Young Man at Argungu Attempting to Assault Buhari! That was a Close Shave.
However, in a quick reaction to the video which had gone viral the Argungu Fishing Festival 2020 has come out with a statement that the man only wanted to have a hand shake with President Buhari and nothing else.
