In an interview with the Hausa service of the BBC, in Abuja, on Thursday, Shehu said only miscreants protested against the president’s visit.
“I was part of the delegation that entered Maiduguri right from the airport to the palace of the Shehu of Borno. The people came out to say thank you and welcome us,” Shehu said.
“But there was a group which came out shouting ‘we don’t want’.
“Some politicians gathered some miscreants and paid them money to boo Buhari.”
