President Muhammadu Buhari has departed Abuja for London, United Kingdom, for routine medical check-up.

It was reported that the president and few of his aides departed the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja for London at about 2.30p.m.

Those at the airport to bid the president farewell included the Chief of Staff to the President, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Muhammed Bello, Inspector-General of Police, Muhammed Adamu and other presidential aides.

It was reported that before departing the presidential villa the president had met behind closed doors with security chiefs where he directed them to fish out and crush heads of bandits, kidnappers and their local collaborators to restore confidence in the society.

Our correspondent reports that the president, who last travelled to London for medical check-up in May 2018, is expected back in the country during the second week of April, 2021.
