Meanwhile, Atiku in a statement by his media aide Ibe Paul challenged Kanu to show the proof that his principal is from the Central African nation.

“You media should ask him to supply the proof. It is not the man that is being accused that you will ask,” the statement notes.

“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.”

Kanu has not been seen publicly since September 2017. He’s only been releasing footage via new media.

In October 2018, Kanu was sighted in Jerusalem. At the time, there were question marks over his presence in Israel because he had to surrender his Nigerian and British passports after his arrest.

Earlier this month,  Kanu explained why he ran away and has remained in exile since 2017 when the army raided his residence in Abia State.

“I ran away because Jubril (President Muhammdu Buhari) sent the military to my house to come and kill me and they expected me to stay and confront them. I’m unarmed just as IPOB members are the unarmed group,” Nnamdi Kanu said in a broadcast on Radio Biafra monitored on its Facebook page.
