Buhari was on Sunday scheduled to depart for the Asia country for official engagements, after a statement by his media aide, Femi Adeshina announced his itinerary.

On the back of the announcement, Kanu in reaction, via a statement, called IPOB members to arrest the president and make him answer for the crimes he allegedly committed between 2015 and 2019.

The statement signed by Emma Powerful, Media and Publicity Secretary of the IPOB said: “The formidable IPOB family in Japan is hereby placed on direct order to ensure the impostor, Jubril Al-Sudani, masquerading as the late dictator, Mubammadu Buhari, is arrested and handed over to the authorities, when he sets foot on Japanese soil. He is not only a fake president, but is also wanted for mass murder and crimes against humanity for his role in previous and ongoing genocide in Biafraland.

“Under Japanese law, an impostor is a common criminal and subject to citizen’s arrest. International diplomatic protocol as it relates to visiting heads of state is not applicable in this instance because whoever Abba Kyari is sending to Japan is not the real Buhari…

“Any legal fall-out emanating from any confrontation will end up in a Japanese court, where we will be able to establish before the world that Jubril is indeed a fake Buhari.”
