A death rumour concerning the president angered a man named Usman Bukar who slapped a taxi driver to coma for the comment.
Vanguard News disclosed that the driver's inflammatory comment about the demise of Buhari made the northerner extremely furious.
The victim 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.”
Report says that the jubilant taxi driver who was rendered temporarily unconscious following the pummeling was finally resuscitated at the Temple Clinic Junction, Asaba.
