The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has commended an unidentified young man for allegedly attempting to attack President Muhammadu Buhari in Kebbi State on Thursday.
The president, who attended the Argungu International Agricultural Show and Cultural Festival in the state was taking photographs with farmers after inspecting rice pyramids on display, when the young man evaded security and charged towards him but was quickly yanked away.
Reacting, the IPOB leader described the incident as a welcome development, while commending the man for attempting to arrest the “45-year-old impostor” called Jubril Al-Sudani, who according to him impersonates Buhari.
Kanu said, “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, Presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, has debunked claims that the president was attacked in Kebbi State.
In a statement issued on Thursday night, Adesina disclosed that the young man who rushed towards Buhari, did so out of excitement.
“He made an attempt to get to him. World over, such would not be allowed by security details. The young man was prevented, and he protested that he should be allowed to greet his President.
“Now, professional contortionists are making mischief of the event. They are passing the video clip off on social media as an attempt to attack the President.
“Malicious people always twist things to give a negative narrative. But they simply dash their heads against the wall. The country moves on”, he said.
