How I escaped bomb near Kaduna’s Kawo bridge — Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday recounted how he escaped a bomb on Kawo bridge in Kaduna while travelling to Katsina in July 2014.

The president stated this during his visit to the state to inaugurate three road projects and newly constructed Kawo bridge executed by the el-Rufai administration.

Speaking during the inauguration, Buhari said; “there was an attempt to bomb me here…there was a market nearby.”

He noted his escape was only possible because his security escort was vigilant.

Under the Urban Renewal Project of the state government, 21 roads totalling 26.3km were either reconstructed, expanded or dualised in Kafanchan, at a total cost of N12.8 billion.

Buhari, in the company of the state governor, Malam Nasir Elrufai, toured the newly commissioned roads, amidst cheers by the huge crowd of people who trooped out to welcome him.

The President thereafter proceeded to the Emir of Jema’a Palace in Kafanchan to pay homage, after which he left for Kaduna, the State capital, to inaugurate more projects.
