Following the disclosure of Buhari’s travel itinerary, Kanu had ordered IPOB members to ensure that the president was arrested and handed over to security agents in Japan upon arrival because he is an imposter.

However, the newspaper reported on Monday the arrival of Buhari to Japan. However, IPOB claimed that the president was not in Japan, and emphasized that photographs of Buhari were photographed in the country.

Junaid Mohammed was quoted as saying: “IPOB will pay with their blood if they try to attack Buhari.” Reacting to Mohammed’s comment, Kanu challenged the former legislator to stop, “running his mouth like a captured bandit.”
