Just in: Buhari departs Dubai for Abuja (video)

President Muhammadu Buhari returned to Abuja on Tuesday, April 9, night, a day ahead of schedule.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the president was initially scheduled to return to Abuja from Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Wednesday, April 10, at about 1.30 am.

However, the presidential aircraft carrying the president, his aides and some members of his entourage landed at the presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja at about 10.45 pm.

NAN gathered that the president’s decision to cut short his official engagements in Dubai might not be unconnected with security developments in Zamfara, Kaduna and some other parts of the country.
