Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari is not scared of the Indigenous People of Biafra in Japan where he is attending the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development and will not be distracted by them, his spokesman said in a statement on Monday.
“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,” said spokesman, Femi Adesina.
He added 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”.
“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 realize that the rest of Nigerians have left them far behind”.
