IPOB Declares Buhari Missing In Japan, Presidency Reacts

Latest News

The Presidency has debunked the alleged report by
the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, that President Muhammadu Buhari
is missing in Japan, Igbere TV reports.

RN reports
that the Presidency said the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has
“nothing to do with President Muhammadu Buhari since he arrived
Yokohama, Japan, on Monday.”

RN reported that Buhari
departed Nigeria yesterday for Japan to participate in the Seventh Tokyo
International Conference on African Development (TICAD7) holding in the
City of Yokohama, August 28-30, 2019.

However, IPOB alleged that the President was not in Japan, stressing that photographs of Buhari were photoshopped.

to the allegation, Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity,
Femi Adesina, urged Nigerians to disregard the claims by IPOB.

a statement made available to Igbere TV, Adesina said: “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 realize that the rest of Nigerians have left them far behind.

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.”
