Buhari Arrives Ebonyi Despite IPOB Threat

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday brushed aside the treat of Indigenous People of Biafra as he arrived Ebonyi for his two-day working visit to the state and Anambra.

Mr. Buhari was received at the Enugu airport by governors of Enugu, Abia and Ebonyi as well as top security officials.

He was later ferried to Abakaliki, the Ebonyi capital, where he was also received by some South East governors.

But curiously, the president shunned inspecting the Guard of Honour mounted in his honour by soldiers of the Nkwoagu Military Cantonment, Abakaliki.

It is still unclear if it was due to security concerns.

On Monday, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, had threatened to assassinate Buhari should he step foot on the South East.

In a statement by IPOB spokesperson, Emma Powerful, the pro-Biafra group warned that “today will be recorded in history as a very bloody day should that Jubril masquerading as Buhari attempt to land on Biafran soil.”
