The president’s supporters stormed the area on Monday with placards.
This came after an anti-Buhari protest led by Omokri at the same Abuja House where Buhari is reportedly staying as he undergoes a medical check-up.
Last Friday, Omokri had led a protest demanding that the president returns to Nigeria without going through his medicals.
Reacting to the protest in support of Buhari’s visit to the UK, Omokri alleged that the government paid supporters, describing the act as shameful.
In a series of tweets via his Twitter page, the former presidential aide to Ex-President Good luck Jonathan wrote: “Dear Garba Shehu, Is this all you guys could do despite your £75 per head bribe? Garba, admit it, you and your government are thoroughly shameless. Without paying anyone one kobo, I was able to sustain Harass Buhari out of London for days and we will continue. Shame on you.
“Shame on General Buhari, their so-called ‘solidarity rally’ for Buhari at Abuja House flopped, with only 5 people turning up, despite the £75 per head they paid. El-Rufai is this the best you guys can do to counter #HarassBuhariOutofLondon. Better demand a refund of your bribe.”
