Japan Visit: Presidency Denies Attack On Buhari By IPOB Supporters
The Presidency on Monday denied reports that President Muhammadu Buhari was attacked by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra in Japan.
In a statement on Monday, the presidency through Femi Adesina stated that the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) group has had nothing to do with President Muhammadu Buhari since he arrived Yokohama, Japan, on Monday.
The President had jetted out of the country on Sunday to attend the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development.
The statement 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.”
