January 30, 2017 – Igbo Taxi Driver Slapped By Hausa Man For Saying Buhari Is Dead At Newsstand In Delta State Hospitalized

Man Attacked For Breaking The Death News Of President Buhari At Newsstand 

An Igbo taxi driver was yesterday rushed to the hospital in Delta state for allegedly saying President Buhari was dead.

According to eyewitnesses, the victim simply identified as Uzoma rushed to a newsstand in Delta State yesterday morning to tell the people there that President Buhari was dead.

The moment he made the statement, an Hausa man identified as Usman Bukar reportedly slapped him.

He reportedly collapsed and lost consciousness after the attack. He was rushed to the hospital where doctors revived him.

An eyewitness said the driver had briefly glanced at his phone and saw the story of the alleged death of the president on the social media.

He was quoted to have said:

“The body of the President should be thrown into River-Niger for fish and other wild animals to do justice on him. He is very wicked.”

Bukar, without wasting time, slapped him.

The fracas would have caused a serious war between the Hausas and the Igbos in the area but policemen from Delta State Police Command quickly put the situation under control.

Delta Police spokesperson, Andrew Aniamaka who confirmed the incident said the attacker has been arrested and detained for interrogation.

  1. He called for such attack. Some people are heavily mouthed to be saying stupid things. The presidency has released pictures of the president he took with those who visited him in the UK hospital to debunk the viral rumor of his death. What else do we want? It was made clear by the presidential office that the president is coming back to Nigeria on the 6th of february next week monday,why not accept that information? The statement such as “the president’s body should be thrown into the river niger for fish and other wild animals to do justice on him” made by this senseless person is a hate speech especially in this climate of religiously intolerant country we are living in now. People should mind their speech in the public.

  2. the guy red the story news on a site, so I dont see any reason he should be slapped by any man, Hausa’s are really taking other tribes as fool

  3. Who is the ” attacker arrested for interrogation…. Is it the person slapped or the person spreading the false news ???
