IPOB did not attack Buhari in Japan – Presidency

The report making rounds in various news media of attack on president Buhari by Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB members in Japan has been denied by the Presidency on Monday.

Buhari is currently in the Japan to attend the Tokyo International Conference on African Development together with other world leaders.

Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President has disconcerted the report.

He said, “The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra group has had nothing to do with President Muhammadu Buhari since he arrived Yokohama, Japan, on Monday.

“Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora are urged to disregard concocted stories backed with spurious visuals of any protest or harassment of the President and his team.

“It is the stock-in-trade of hate mongers, who do not realise that the rest of Nigerians have left them far behind.

“President Buhari will make his presence at the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7) count for Nigeria, and no scare-mongering or sabre-rattling will detract from the outing.”

It will be recall that members of IPOB attacked former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, in Nuremburg, Germany, on August 17, 2019 during a ceremony to celebrate New Yam Festival.
