President Muhammadu Buhari’s whereabouts appears shrouded in mystery, two days after he left Washington following a bilateral meeting with President Donald Trump.
The president was expected in Nigeria on Wednesday.
Mr Buhari’s official aircraft, Eagle One, left Joint Base Andrews military airfield in Washington on Tuesday morning and arrived in London at 9:42 p.m., according to Flight Radar 24, which tracks air traffic across the world.
But as at 10:00 a.m. Thursday, the aircraft was still in London amidst unclear circumstances.
An April 27 State House press release which announced Mr Buhari’s scheduled take-off from Nigeria on May 28, did not say he would stop by in London.
The statement only gave highlights of the president’s engagement while in the U.S.
Mr Buhari arrived in Washington on April 29 and had a series of bilateral meetings with Mr Trump, including a working launch and a joint press briefing.
