IPOB mobilizing to humiliate Buhari in U.S, group raises the alarm | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


As President Muhammadu Buhari arrives the United States to address the United Nations General Assembly, Northern leaders have raised the alarm that the embattled leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has mobilized Nigerians living in the country to attack the president.

The Arewa people under the aegis of Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG, alleged on Sunday in a mail sent to Vanguard that the plan by IPOB sponsors was to humiliate President Buhari, who is billed to speak at UNGA.

In the mail signed by the Spokesman for the CNG, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, the northern leaders said that the action was also intended to further provoke the northerners and incite the world against the Nigerian leader and his government. But the northern group vowed to make appropriate response to the IPOB provocation by taking its position against he antic of the proscribed organization to the UN.

The northern group however hailed the South-East governor’s for proscribing IOPB once it was declared a terrorist group by the Defense Headquarters, saying that they had been vindicated by such declarations. CNG also lauded the governments of Abia, Rivers and Plateau States for promptly arresting the move by IPOB to set the country on war path and kill innocent Nigerians in the process.

The northern group said, “We must state here that our position that IPOB be proscribed, its activities be declared as acts of terror, and its leaders be accordingly treated in the interest of a greater, peaceful and united Nigeria has to a large extent been vindicated which is also reassuring and encouraging. “We also wish to state that we have a priviledged information that IPOB sponsors are mobilizing their members in the Diaspora to humiliate our dear President Muhammadu Buhari in New York where he is billed to address the United Nations General Assembly.

“We call on Nigerians to as well overlook this planned unpatriotic action by the IPOB supporters as it is nothing but another antic to provoke reactions.

“We assure all peace loving Nigerians that CNG is also preparing to counter IPOB’ foreign propaganda efforts by compiling relevant facts to be presented personally to the UN soon. “Finally, we reiterate the call for calm and tolerance as the authorities diligently carry out their duties.”

  1. Let them try any act of stupidity in the States,am sure Donald Trump's newly invigorated ICE team would be glad to get enough of them out of USA.USA under Trump are desperately trying to get migrants out of America anyway.Era of sensible and considerate Obama is over,they now have the unpredictable Trump and his sadistic machinery

    1. Stop worrying urself for nothing.
      You speak like a normal aboki.
      I wish anyone knows/hear what you just said. You are only talking to anybody that reads your comments here, simple!!

    2. You are such a fool and idiotic personal

  2. Donald Trump is everything but stupid. Trump knows what's constitutional, he recognises the right of those who need to say something in their own way.

  3. Buhari is the one to learn how to respect and accommodate protesters.

  4. I have watched Nnamdi KANU very closely with gusto and must say that he's influenced a lot of minds with his agitations, especially the inferior, sentimental and biased minds. Does he have a good case? Probably,he does have a good case but he doesn't have the rhetorics to wisely communicate and pursue to a logical conclusion his grievances. He sounds very much like a broken record,in fact,he has difficulty attracting the elite class. This is worsened by the provocative and mindless manner he unleashes his venom on all his perceived enemies and the haughty ways he portrays himself thinking that he's a sage,which he's far from attending because of his disposition. The cause he's agitating for,although many have in their minds identified with it,indeed there's gross case of marginalisation in Nigeria, which has its root from the conceptualization of it as a nation coupled with the sinister motives of those who created it. Unlike KANU,a lot of people are aggrieved in the present constitution of Nigeria but do not have the guts or are comfortable in their egocentric sphere to embark on such journey. But KANU is
    without discretion and tactless. He could have made a formidable impact if he'd consulted the right minds and follow it through with patience and persistence,listening and sieving out what does not follow the recipe of his agenda.I hope he gets to learn the complex and peculiar nature of Nigeria and meet the right people for a way forward so his agitation doesn't become messier.
