An advance team of security guards, protocol and media officers going to Daura, Katsina State ahead of President Muhammadu Buhari was on Tuesday evening attacked by gunmen.

The team was on the way to Daura, the hometown of Buhari where the President is expected to be this weekend for the Muslim’s Eid-el-kabir celebration.

The gunmen shot at the convoy of cars carrying the presidential advance team near Dutsinma, Katsina State, Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on media and publicity said in a statement on Tuesday.

“The attackers opened fire on the convoy from ambush positions but were repelled by the military, police and DSS personnel accompanying the convoy,” Shehu said.

He added that two persons in the convoy are receiving treatment for the minor injuries they suffered while all the other personnel, staff and vehicles made it safely to Daura.
