A younger male called Mohammed Jamilu Gunddare on Friday reacted to reports of him attempting to attack President Muhammadu Buhari in Kebbi State.
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 article, saying Bello only needed to take a selfie.
Nevertheless, Gunddare while talking to journalists on the event, said he was only “excited and eager” to get a handshake with Buhari.
Stating he admired Buhari a lot, Gunddare also dismissed promises that he was detained by the Department of State Services, DSS.
He said: “I was emotionally connected 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 provided food”.
