Nigerians in London have mobilized to take over Abuja House, the official resident where President Muhammadu Buhari is currently staying in London by tomorrow.
This is coming as the Presidency announced few minutes ago the death of a soldier, Sa’idu Afaka in Aso Rock clinic.
Sa’idu Afaka, according to the Presidency, died after a prolonged illness.
Sa’idu Afaka, a Master Warrant Officer in the Nigerian Army and Official Driver to President Muhammadu Buhari died inside the Aso Rock clinic today.
Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu said in quote:
“President Muhammadu Buhari extends heartfelt condolences to the family of Afaka on the passing of Master Warrant Officer, Sa’idu Afaka, his official driver, who died at the State House Clinic on Tuesday after a prolonged illness.
“President Buhari, who also commiserates with the Government and people of Kaduna State, described the late Afaka as an honest, capable and reliable person who handled his job with utmost care and responsibility.
“The President recalls that in 2016 the soldier, while on pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia, picked up a bag containing a large amount of foreign currencies and turned it over to the National Hajj Commission, an action which earned him praises from the Saudi and Nigerian authorities.
“President Buhari prays Almighty Allah to ‘‘bless the soul of the departed with an elevated place in heavens,’’ committing the family and friends to divine comfort and patience”.
Nigerians in London plan to carry out the mass protest by 12 noon tomorrow.
Founder of Saharareporters, Omoyele Sowore and Political Activist, Adeyanju Deji are currently campaigning and appealing for more Nigerians in London to come out for the protest to send Muhammadu Buhari back home.
