The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has disagreed with reports from the presidency, which stated that President Mubammadu Buhari is in Japan to participate in the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7) holding in the City of Yokohama.
IPOB claimed that Buhari was in Oman and that pictures and videos of Buhari in circulation by the media team of the president were photoshop and doctored clips.
This was made known in a statement issued by the Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful, on Tuesday, 27th August 2019, which reads:
“I am ashamed that supposedly reputable media houses and a few other popular newspapers, knowingly or unknowingly allowed themselves to become conduit in the propagation of deliberate falsehood designed to deceive the public into believing that Jubri-Buhari is in Japan when clearly he was in Oman.
“This model of governance is now regular and extensive use of fake photo-shopped images and digitally altered videos is the reason why Nigeria can never move forward, becomes a developed nation or be regarded as a civilised country.
“No sane country can function on lies and expect to survive the consequential backlash from the righteous majority. What APC and Fulani cabal have done throughout their rule is to entrench the repugnant culture of Oluwale (the home of document forgery is Africa) into Aso Rock.
“They may have succeeded in deceiving their fellow Nigerians but they cannot deceive us Biafrans.”
