Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari is not in Mecca (Makkah), the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Recall that President Buhari had accepted an invitation by the King Salman Bin Abdulaziz, the ruler of Saudi Arabia and Custodian of the two Holy Mosques to perform the Umrah (lesser pilgrimage) in the Kingdom.
Last Friday, pictures of the President and his wife Aisha performing Umrah (lesser Hajj) at the Masjid Haram (the Grand Mosque) in Makkah surfaced online.
The Personal Assistant to Buhari on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, shared pictures of the President on his Twitter page with the caption:
“President @MBuhari performs Umrah (lesser Hajj) at the Masjid Haram (the Grand Mosque) in Makkah, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”
However, after the Presidential aide shared the photos, Kanu took to Twitter handle to post same photos, alleging that the photos were taken in 2016 during Buhari’s Umrah (lesser Hajj) not 2019.
The IPOB leader shared the photos with the caption: “Shameless and fraudulent Fulani cabal with corrupt Yoruba media have published a falsehood beyond comprehension.
“This same 2016 photos of late Buhari in Mecca has resurfaced to deceive the gullible in 2019. Despicable!”
Kanu’s claim came days after he said President Buhari doesn’t deserve to be sworn in for another term as Nigerian President because he does not have the required academic qualifications.
“Jubril/Buhari has no basis to present himself to be sworn in on the 29th. That was why the impostor said education is no longer important.
“If truly no man is above the law and the Constitution of the land is supreme. If the constitution is supreme and is meant to guide the conduct of civilised men within a specifically defined geo-political area, then let me remind all the sophisticated morons in Nigeria that their constitution says every contender for the presidency must present a verifiable school certificate (WAEC) which neither the dead Buhari had nor his replacement Jubril ever did,” the IPOB leader had said.
Meanwhile, Umrah is an Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca, Hijaz, Saudi Arabia, performed by Muslims that can be undertaken at any time of the year, in contrast to the Ḥajj which has specific dates according to the Islamic lunar calendar.
Police, IPOB, MASSOB In Bloody Clash In Imo State
More than 20 operatives from Imo State Police Command on Friday clashed with members of Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) and Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) at Orji in Owerri North Council Area of the state.
The incident, which took place in the morning hours at Orji between the Orji fly over and Ama wire, according to eyewitness, led to exchange of gunfire that led to some members of the two organisations sustaining serious injuries.
It was gathered the IPOB members were waiting at Orji/Okigwe road Owerri Imo State to receive the corpse of a member Onyekachukwu Uzoma from Mbaise, who died at Enugu, when they clashed with the operatives.
The witness said that passersby scampered for safety when gunshots were fired.
The situation forced security operatives to block the road, preventing human and vehicular moments in the area, The Nation reports.
Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Comrade Emma Powerful, confirmed the incident to the Nation.
He alleged the police shot at the members “when Imo IPOB family were waiting at Orji to receive the dead body of our member been conveyed from Enugu to Mbaise when they were shot by the police operatives with many of them sustaining injuries.
“The Nigeria and army and SARS started shooting suproadically at our IPOB members. Nigeria Army and Police have started once again pushing us to the wall.
“IPOB is not happy how Nigeria government are killing Biafrans and other Christians in Nigeria.
“We are warning Nigeria government and her security operatives to stop attacking IPOB because they will regret their actions soon.”
When contacted, the State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Orlando Ikeokwu, denied gun shots were fired.
He claimed the police were only trying to restore normalcy in the area.
According to him: “MASSOB members mounted road block and then Police was trying to restore normalcy.”
“They also attacked a team of policemen attached to Orji Division along Owerri/Okigwe Road by the Orji Flyover.
“The hoodlums while trying to dispossess the policemen of their service rifles also inflicted machete wounds on the policemen.
”However, the attack was successfully repelled with arrests made, while some others ran away with various degree of injuries.”
