The self-acclaimed leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari has confirmed that he is an “impostor”.
Kanu made this allegation on Twitter on Wednesday night in reference to a picture of the President responding to cheers from his supporters by raising his fist.
The IPOB leader had earlier said during a live broadcast via radio Biafra that Buhari would no longer wave his supporters because he had a different palm print from that of his “impostor”.
Kanu then uploaded a photo of the President responding to the cheers by raising his fist, alleging that it was a confirmation of his allegations that the President is an “impostor”.
The IPOB leader tweeted: “Just as I warned in my last broadcast, the Sudanese impostor to late President Buhari in Aso Rock
#Nigeria will never wave at the people again. He now waves fist to hide palm print. Nigeria is drowning in her own lies.”
Just as I warned in my last broadcast, the Sudanese impostor to late President Buhari in Aso Rock #Nigeria will never wave at the people again.
He now waves fist to hide palm print.

Since the pro-Biafra activist came out of hiding in October after the military invasion of his community in Abia State, southeast Nigeria, last year, he has been alleging that President Buhari is an imposter whose real name is Jibril Aminu Al-Sudani from Sudan.
But Buhari, while speaking in Poland, where he attended a climate change summit, said he would soon celebrate his 76th birthday, adding that “a lot of people hoped that I died during my ill health. Somebody just thought I am cloned, … it is real me I can assure you”.
