Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu says some politicians paid miscreants to boo President Muhammadu Buhari in Borno state.
On Wednesday, some residents of the state booed the president as his convoy made its way into Maiduguri.
Buhari was on a condolence visit to the state over the killing of 30 citizens at Auno on Sunday.
In an interview with the Hausa Service of the BBC, in Abuja today, Shehu said only miscreants protested against the president’s visit.
The presidential spokesman said the administration has the capacity to fight the insurgents.
It will be recalled that during the visit, Governor Babagana Zulum told the president that the military needed to change its strategy in the fight against Boko Haram.
He said the military needs to take the war to the insurgents in their hideouts.
