Buhari was expected to visit Bodo city in Ogoni, Rivers State today, June 2, 2016, to flag off the clean-up of oil spills caused by oil companies in the area.

 

According to Sahara Reporters, the cancellation is connected to a threat by new militant group, Niger Delta Avengers to kill Buhari if he steps foot in the region.
