Pigeons released by President Buhari refuse to fly at armed forces remembrance (VIDEO)

Pigeons released by President Buhari refuse to fly at armed forces remembrance (VIDEO)

The white pigeons released by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Armed Forces Remembrance Day ceremony, refused to fly despite several attempts by the President thereby causing a subject of discussion on social media on Friday.

As a sign of peace, the president usually releases some white pigeons from a cage and immediately they fly away.

But, this year, the birds refused flying on Friday with most of them sticking to the cage.

The President had opened the birdcage, picked up one of the birds, and thrown it into the air but the bird landed atop the cage and refused to take flight.

Buhari, who was eager to let the white pigeons fly, opened the roof of the cage in a bid to send them all out but the birds remained adamant and decided to sit on top of the cage’s roof.

The President, who appeared tired of trying, soon left the birds and returned to his seat. Moments after the President had left, however, some of the birds flew.

After three decades, the king of Zamunda is coming back 2 America as Amazon Prime Video released the official, star-studded trailer to the movie, a sequel to its 1988 predecessor.

Coming 2 America about to be released – Watch trailer

The two-minute trailer opens with the former king of Zamunda, James Earl Jones, informing King Akeem that he has a son back in America who is destined to be the heir to the throne one day.

Thus, sending King Akeem and Semmi back to the United States—to the displeasure of Semmi who immediately shouts, “Oh hell no, Your Majesty!” As fans may recall, his character didn’t exactly have the best time in the original film.

The upcoming project is a sequel to ‘Coming to America,’ a 1988 romantic comedy film directed by John Landis.

The sequel, directed by Craig Brewer, features several movie stars including Jermaine Fowler, Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, Kiki Layne, Shari Headley (who is repeating her role in the original version as Lisa McDowell).

Others are Wesley Snipes, John Amos (who is also repeating his role as Cleo McDowell), and Teyana Taylor, an American singer-songwriter.
