The leader of Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has claimed that the person presently ruling the country is not Muhammadu Buhari, adding that the Nigerian government hired a look-alike to stand in for the president.
“The man you are looking at on the television is not Buhari, he is from Sudan. After extensive plastic surgery they brought him back. The person was taught Buhari’s mannerisms and he came back deceiving all of you. I can stand and prove who I am but Buhari cannot do the same thing. He cannot deceive Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB,” the IPOB leader said while addressing his followers at his Umuahia residence.
He added: “The worst mistake Buhari ever made was to arrest me. I will break the zoo into pieces. I am taking IPOB to Abuja on the 17th of next month for my court case.
“There will be 2 million people in Abuja. We take the battle to our enemies. You are under oath and by virtue of that oath you are under direct order from me, any day you hear I have been arrested, to burn down Nigeria to the ground.”
He also condemned The Sun Newspaper for publishing untrue stories about him.
“It wasn’t my wish to speak but the more I keep quiet the more they keep lying. I am under oath to defend IPOB and I will do so. We can never, ever surrender. Don’t mind the lies they are feeding you. People want to sell their newspapers, they fabricate nonsense.” Mr. Kanu said.
