In a tweet posted on his account on Sunday, Fani-Kayode called out the “mumus clapping for Buhari”, over his decision to proscribe IPOB.
He wrote: “‘America does not see IPOB as a terrorist organisation’- US Embassy.
“O dear. Where are all the mumus that were clapping for @MBuhari?”
The spokesman for the American Embassy in Nigeria, Russell Brooks, stated that the US is committed to Nigeria’s unity and would support a peaceful resolution of any crisis in the country.
“The United States Government is strongly committed to Nigeria’s unity. Important political and economic issues affecting the Nigerian people, such as the allocation of resources, are worthwhile topics for respectful debate in a democracy.
“Within the context of unity, we encourage all Nigerians to support a de-escalation of tensions and peaceful resolution of grievances. The Indigenous People of Biafra is not a terrorist organisation under US law,” he said.
