Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has spoken about yesterday’s incident in which a young Hausa man rushed at President Muhammadu Buhari.
The incident reportedly occurred at the Argungu International Agricultural Show and Cultural Festival in Kebbi State.
In a short video that went viral on social media, the young man can be seen rushing at Buhari as the president inspects rice pyramids on display and takes photos with farmers.
However, the young man’s intention was not immediately clear, as the president’s security detail quickly overpowered him.
Reacting to the video, Kanu, who is a fugitive, said the young man attempted to arrest the impostor called Jubril Al-Sudani.
Recall that Kanu had taken to addressing Buhari by the name Jubril Al-Sudani, saying the real Nigerian president had died and has since been replaced by a clown from Sudan.
Sharing a video of the incident, he wrote on Facebook: “The attempted citizen’s arrest of Jubril Al-Sudani is a welcome development.
“I am glad that some Hausa people are now waking up to the reality of Abba Kyari’s horror show that is Jubril Al-Sudani.
“I commend that young Hausa man in this video that tried to arrest the 45 year old criminal impostor from Sudan.
“Look at the video again and tell me the young looking boy being paraded by the evil cabal as the late Buhari is not Jubril Al-Sudani.
“At least, conscientious northerners can now see what we saw since 2017. Jubril’s days are numbered.”
Meanwhile, the presidency has debunked claims of an alleged attempt on the president’s life.
“President Muhammadu Buhari was in Kebbi State Thursday to declare open the Argungu Fishing and Cultural Festival. It was the first time the international tourism event would hold in eleven years, as security considerations had rendered it impracticable.
“As the President went round the arena to inspect rice pyramids on display, and take photographs with farmers, a young man was so very excited to see his President so close. He made an attempt to get to him.
“Malicious people always twist things to give a negative narrative. But they simply dash their heads against the wall. The country moves on, presidential spokesman”, Femi Adesina said in a statement.
