Nigeria President, Muhammadu Buhari has recounted how the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso, saved his dear life in a 2014 bomb explosion in Kaduna State.

Buhari, who escaped the onslaught orchestrated members of the Boko Haram group on July 24, 2014, was at that time vying for the presidency.

Tens of people lost their lives in the horrible attack – including a police operative.

Buhari alongside renown Islamic cleric, Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi survived the attack without sustaining injury.

The president in a documentary titled, “Essential Muhammadu Buhari,” broadcast by the presidency on Sunday, revealed how terrorists unleashed assault on him while traveling in a bulletproof vehicle gifted to him by the former Kano State Governor.

Buhari recalled: “I think Kwankwaso was being generous. He gave me an armored Land Rover vehicle.

“He said I should use it because he believed the competition I was going on involved people who would like to eliminate me.

“I was going to Kano from Kaduna in that jeep and a vehicle wanted to overtake us but my escort stopped them and they detonated the bomb.

“When I looked, I saw pieces of human beings. None of us in the vehicle were injured. But somehow I saw blood on me because of the number of people killed outside by the bomb.”
