Do not be alarmed, it is not President Muhammadu Buhari.

Explosive drones targeting Venezuela’s president have been deemed an “assassination attempt”.

President Nicolas Maduro narrowly escaped a series of explosions which abruptly broke out while he was giving a speech in the crisis-hit capital of Caracas on Saturday.

Several drones with explosives detonated close to the leader while he was addressing a crowd, according to the country’s Information Minister.

The president said suspects had been arrested but didn’t specify a number. He vowed that others would be rounded up in what he said would be a harsh crackdown.

“You’ve failed again,” he said, referring to his opponents. 

“There will not be forgiveness. We will chase you and we will capture you wherever you are.”  

He blamed the government of Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, who has been critical of growing repression in Venezuela, as well as unnamed right-wing forces in Florida.
