IPOB: Buhari Speaks On Nnamdi Kanu's Planned Return
Since the leader of proscribed Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) resurfaced in Jerusalem over a year after the military danced the Python Dance in the South East, that image of him has continued to draw reactions.
There are claims that he said he would return to Nigeria with hell, and that statement has caught the attention of the Presidency.
In a statement on Tuesday, the spokesman for President Muhammadu Buhari, Mr Garba Shehu gave the President stance on the matter.
He stressed that Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari was strong enough to defend its territory against any threat.
Mr Garba then assured Nigerians that there was no reason to worry about what he called "hollow outburst by Nnamdi Kanu, the disputed leader of IPOB on returning to the country “with hell"'.
"Instead, we see the re-enactment of his bizarre, episodic threat as a mere distraction which will not be allowed to detract from the existing cordial relationships between Nigeria and other countries.
"The Buhari administration is in constant touch with other friendly nations and has the best assurances that they would continue to reciprocate the respect Nigeria has for the sovereignty of their nations," the statement read.
He then emphasised that Nigerians had nothing to fear from the purported threat.
Images of Mr Kanu in Jerusalem were released last week.
