“General @MBuhari’s people called the police on me. I was questioned and let go, the #HarassBuhariOutOfLondon. The police established that we had broken no laws and we were observing proper #COVID19 protocols. This government’s attempt to stop failed big time!” he tweeted.
In his speech at the protest, Omokri said: “General Buhari is not running a government. He is running a criminal enterprise. He killed #EndSARS protesters and now he is in London to secure his life? Send the coward back to fix the mess he created.”
Buhari left the country for London on March 30. Many have criticised him for leaving for medical check-up overseas after resident doctors threatened to go on strike.
The doctors kicked off their strike on Thursday despite signing a memorandum of understanding with the Federal Government.
