Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has said that IPOB is not the Ohaneze Ndigbo and the Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) that bow to threats.
Mr Kanu said this in a tweet on Wednesday in response to a Second Republic lawmaker, Junaid Mohammed, who said that “IPOB will pay with their blood if they attempt an attack on Buhari.”
Kanu had directed IPOB members in Japan to ‘arrest’ and ‘disgrace’ President Muhammadu Buhari when he arrives in the country for the seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7) holding in the City of Yokohama from August 28 to 30.
Referring to Junaid as a ‘captured bandit in police custody’, the IPOB leader dared Buhari to make a public appearance in Japan and see how he would be embarrassed by Biafrans.
“Rather than running his mouth like a captured bandit in police custody, Junaid Mohammed should allow Jubril to make a public appearance in Japan, only then will he understand how insanely fanatical we are about Biafra.
“IPOB is not Ohaneze or PANDEF that bow to threats,” he said.
The Presidency had on Monday denied that there was any protest or attack on Buhari by IPOB members in Japan.
