Anxiety was growing in Nigeria on Thursday after President Muhammadu Buhari failed to arrive Abuja on Wednesday, a day after leaving Washington D.C. for the Nigerian capital.
Mr. Buhari left the American capital on Tuesday after a meeting and a joint press conference with President Donald Trump on Monday.
His media aide then tweeted that the President was on his way to Abuja. He should have arrived on Wednesday.
But, reports in Nigeria said on Thursday the plane carrying Mr. Buhari changed its flight path and went to London where the Nigerian leader spent much of last year treating himself for an undisclosed ailment.
Calls by local reporters to the media team of the President were not returned, even as the change of flight path was not explained.
A local newspaper said Mr. Buhari was yet to arrive the Nigerian capital as at 10 a.m. on Thursday May 3.
