If you slap Buhari, you'll die multiple times - Dele Momodu, Sowore and others react to viral video of a man slapping French President, Emmanuel Macron

Buhari: Don’t try this with him

The video of a man slapping French President Emmanuel Macron during a crowd walkabout is sparking reactions online.


The 43-year-old politician was slapped by a man who first shouted “Down with Macronia” (“A Bas La Macronie”) before slapping the president at his walkabout session with a crowd in the Drome region in southeastern France on Tuesday, June 8.

Two men have since been arrested in the wake of the incident.

Reacting to the video on Twitter, Dele Momodu said if someone did the same to President Muhammadu Buhari, the culprit would be handed a death sentence, while Omoyele Sowore added that entire Southern France would have been burnt down by the Nigerian Army if the incident happened in Nigeria.
