The leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu has said Adamawa state used to be part of Cameroon where the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) hails from.
Kanu in his broadcast on Saturday had alleged that Atiku is from Cameroon, urging “Biafrans” not to vote during the 2019 election.
“Some of you do not understand that the person behind the failure of Ekwueme in 1999 during PDP convention was Atiku,” Kanu noted.
“Do you know that Atiku Abubakar is from Cameroon? His area of Adamawa was in Cameroon.”
“You media should ask him to supply the proof. It is not the man that is being accused that you will ask,” the statement noted.
“It is the person who made the allegations that you will ask to bring his proof of where he (Atiku) is from or where he is not from.”
However, Kanu has gone ahead to blast Nigerians who he said do not understand history.
In a tweet, he wrote: “Now I understand why they were denied history lessons in schools and universities.
“The caliphate wanted to make them even dumber. Common history of Adamawa they don’t know. Yet they claim they are educated. Damnable Zoological Republic. #SitAtHome on 16 February and be counted.”

Kanu is leading a secessionist movement that wants the Southeast to be granted an independent state.
He is presently in London, the UK where he is making “diplomatic” moves to ensure “Biafrans” boycott the presidential election billed for February 16.
