President Muhammadu Buhari was smuggled out of Kensington Close Hotel, London, via the basement, on Friday, as angry Biafrans protesting the illegal incarceration of the Independent People of Biafra [IPOB] leader, Nnamdi Kanu laid siege on the premises.
The angry Biafrans blocked Buhari from entry into the Kensington Close Hotel where he was billed to address Nigeria Community in the United Kingdom, unknown to Buhari and his convoy.
It took the intervention of the metropolitan police to allow him passage after persuading Biafrans to calm down.
The move disorganised and affected Buharis program as he could only spend about ten minutes in the supposedly town hall meeting.
While Biafrans waited outside the hotel entrance for Buhari’s exit, his aids pleaded with the metropolitan police to ask them to leave.
The police rebuffed them, letting them know that these people have right under the law to stay where they wanted to.
Afraid of Biafrans on his way out, he has to be smuggled through the basement of the hotel.
