The leader of the secessionist group and Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has alleged that the report of gunshots in presidential villa, Aso Rock, was a “palace coup to topple the presidency of Aisha Buhari’s boyfriend.
Juicy Update understands that Muhammadu Buhari is President of Nigeria and Aisha is the wife to president Buhari.
Kanu has consistently and reportedly alleged that President Buhari is dead and had since been replaced by Jubril Al-Sudani from Sudan an allegation the Presidency has debunked many times.
Since the IPOB leader resurfaced in Jerusalem, Israel two years ago, he has been alleging that President Buhari is dead and had since been replaced by Jubril Al-Sudani from Sudan, a claim which the President debunked.
President Buhari had said in reaction to Kanu’s allegations that those spreading the rumours about his health and identity were ”ignorant and irreligious.”
President Buhari part of statement reads; ”A lot of people hoped that I died during my ill health. Some even reached out to the vice-president to consider them to be his deputy because they assumed I was dead.
“That embarrassed him a lot and of course, he visited me when I was in London convalescing… It’s [the] real me; I assure you,” President Buhari had said.
However, the recent report of gunshots in Aso Rock following an attempt by Aisha Buhari, members of her immediate family and her Aide-de-camp, Usman Shugaba to try force Sabiu Yusuf, a Special Assistant to President Buhari into self-isolation, after he returned from Lagos state, where his wife had a baby, Kanu has given a new twist of the whole story.
The incident which was described as a breach of security had seen the First Lady express disgust in a series of tweets on the micro-blogging site, where she warned: “That COVID-19 is real and still very much around in our nation is not in doubt. Consequently,
“I call on all relevant Government Agencies to enforce the Quarantine Act signed by Mr President and ensure no one is found violating this law and the NCDC guidelines especially on interstate travel without the necessary exemptions for movement of essentials.
“Anyone who does that should at the very least be made to undergo a 14 days mandatory isolation no matter who the person is, no one should be above the law and the Police command will do well to remember that,” the First Lady had said.
While briefing on the incident in a tweet on Saturday 13th of June, Nnamdi Kanu posted: “Gunshots in Aso Rock as a palace coup to topple the ‘PRESIDENCY’ of Aisha Buhari’s boyfriend fails. Nigeria is a #FailingState.#BiafraExit.”
This burgeoning online news platform had recently reported that Nigeria government announced 501 fresh coronavirus infections in the country.
