Normalcy returns to Abuja House

Abuja House

There was normalcy at the official house of the Nigerian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Abuja House, yesterday morning, when The Guardian made a scheduled visit around 8.15am to feel the vacuum created by the departure of President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday night.

There was no movement or sighting of anyone. Not even a single vehicle was inside the Kensington temporary residence, where Buhari spent his 49-day medical vacation.

“We suspected he might be going yesterday, as there was movement of vehicles and they were packing things,” a source revealed.

“There’s nobody in the house. The President is not here; he is gone. They’ve all gone,” a security official, who answered when The Guardian pressed the buzzer, replied from his office.

When The Guardian disclosed knowledge of the President’s departure from the UK and arrival in Nigeria about half an hour later, but wanted to speak to any staff member, he added very harshly: “Do you mean l am not a staff?” before terminating the conversation abruptly.
