Vice President Namadi Sambo was booed during the 40th Anniversary of Emir Of Zazzau in his hometown of Zaria, Kaduna state.
The incident occurred during the 40th year anniversary of Alhaji Shehu Idris on the Zazzau’s throne; a senior military officer confirmed the incident anonymously.
According to the source, Sambo arrived the occasion late shortly before closing prayers, an upset crowd started chanting ‘we don’t want you, we don’t want you’ upon sighting Sambo arriving the venue. The agitated crowd also chanted some words against President Goodluck Jonathan.
Despite plea by the organizers of the event who tried convincing the crowd to leave, the crowd remained in the open field and continued with their protest.
The Vice President and a retinue of security aides and other dignitaries entered the palace before the crowd finally dispersed.
Governor Mukhtar Ramalan Yero of Kaduna state has earlier spoken on behalf of Sambo announcing release of financial compensation for victims of post election violence in 2011.
