The crowd thronging the Teslim Balogun Stadium, venue of the All Progressives Congress Saturday’s Mega rally in Lagos for President Muhammadu Buhari, were held spellbound by a physically-challenged boy with fascinating dance steps.
The boy, who simply identified himself as Muhammadu, had lost the use of both legs to the dreaded polio, danced so well and energetically to songs praising the APC presidential candidate in the February 16 election.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Muhammadu’s act became difficult to ignore by those around, as many people soon formed a pool of crowd around him.
While dancing, he would stop to occasionally blow a small flute, chanting ‘Sai Buhari’ and would continue dancing to the rapturous applause of the enchanted crowd.
Unable to resist the allure and moved by how Muhammadu displayed his strong show of support for Buhari, despite his disability, some of the APC dignitaries and supporters left their seats to dance with him, showering him with some naira notes.
NAN reports that the 10-year-old boy was seen tucking some N1000 notes and smaller denominations in his pocket, while raising eight fingers up before quitting the scene.
