Buhari begins two-day working visit to Ebonyi and Anambra state.
President Muhammadu Buhari has defied IPOB’s warning and is currently in Ebonyi state on a two-day working visit to Ebonyi and Anambra states.
Buhari came in through the Enugu airport where he was received by governors of Enugu, Abia and Ebonyi as well as top security officials.
The President was thereafter transported to Abakaliki, the Ebonyi state capital, where he was also received by some south east governors.

Information obtained by Naija News, however indicated President Buhari, shunned the Guard of Honour mounted in his honour by soldiers of the Nkwoagu Military Cantonment, Abakaliki.
Recall the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, in a statement released by its spokesperson Emma Powerful, 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.”
The President however, shunned the IPOB warning, stressing his administration would rather ensure all regions of the country enjoy the dividends of democracy regardless of political or ethnic affiliations.
