There was a mild drama at the national arcade in Abuja on Friday when some pigeons President Muhammadu Buhari released to commemorate the armed forces remembrance day refused to fly.

As a custom, Buhari opened a cage housing some pigeons and threw one of them into the air but it landed on the top of the cage and refused to fly.

Efforts of the president to make other pigeons fly did not materialise until he got visibly tired and returned to his seat while the activities continued.

The pigeons later flew when the president left.

Releasing of pigeons symbolises peace and it is a ritual to commemorate loved ones who are no more.

The development has sparked reactions on the social media. See some below:

    That your supposed president in that video doesn’t resemble Buhari to me. Buhari is taller and lanky.

    Those pigeons knew.
