Gunddare was reported to have attempted an attack president during the Argungu Festival in Kebbi State after a video of him charging towards Buhari had surfaced online.
But the Presidency had denied the report, saying Bello only wanted to take a selfie.
However, Gunddare while addressing journalists on the incident, said he was only “excited and eager” to have a handshake with Buhari.
Stating that he admired Buhari very much, Gunddare also dismissed claims that he was detained by the Department of State Services, DSS.
He said: “I was emotionally attached to his outstanding virtues of honesty and craved to shake him.
“I am alive and the DSS never tortured me; nobody ever tortured me, I was well cared for and given food”.
